Welcome to the world of an amazing robot fish drone that leads other fish to safety! This is an incredible technology that could really reduce bycatch in the future. Imagine sending out a robot drone that could herd the schooling fish away from non targeted species. Also, the ability to blend in with the rest of the fish should open numerous doors to the natural behavior of a wild fish population. Be sure to check out the video. It’s amazing to see how life like the fish behave.
