We were gifted a Sofar Trident via a grant from WCS, we’ve taken it out several times a week for training on it and conducted three coral surveys.
We are using this technology to survey coral along the Florida Reef Tract for disease, bleaching and overall health.
As we’ve learned more about the Trident we have discovered its usefulness but also it’s weaknesses for the type of conservation work we are trying to accomplish. We are considering adding an M2 Chasing Pro to our equipment team. Have any of you use both the Trident and the m2 Chasing who can provide a comparison of what you liked/disliked about each machine?
