The ROV is the camera which is used to make underwater pictures. Greenpeace is monitoring and campaigning at the Cleaver Bank in the North Sea to protect the vulnerable life on the seabeds against destructive bottom trawling. According to the organisation the Cleaver Bank has the highest biodiversity in the Dutch North Sea and has been seriously damaged by many years of intensive fishing.In original language:Afbakenen Zeereservaat in de NoordzeeHet te water laten van de ROV (remotely operated vehicle) vanaf het dek van de ms Sleipner. De ROV is de camera waarmee onder water foto's gemaakt kunnen worden. Greenpeace bestudeert de Klaverbank in de Noordzee en voert er campagne om het kwetsbare zeeleven te beschermen tegen destructieve bodemvisserij. Volgens de organisatie wordt op de Klaverbank de grootste biodiversiteit in het Nederlandse gedeelte van de Noordzee aangetroffen maar is al ernstig beschadigd door jarenlange intensieve visserij.Locations:Amsterdam-The NetherlandsDate:3 Jun, 2011Credit:© Greenpeace / Cris Toala OlivaresMaximum size:2282px X 3500pxKeywords:Boats-Camera equipment-Day-Greenpeace ships-KWCI (GPI)-Marine Reserves (campaign title)-Oceans (campaign title)-Outdoors-Remotely operated vehicles-SeasShoot:Marking Marine Reserve in the North SeaAs part of the campaign ‘SOS North Sea” Greenpeace is present during one month at the Cleaver Bank in the North Sea. With the mv Sleipner the organisation charts the biodiversity of the sea beds, shows the rich variety of the flora and fauna in the area with the help of a robot camera (ROV) and protects the vulnerable life on the sea beds by letting down wooden statues of sea horses tightened to heavy rocks on the bottom. By means of these ‘gatekeepers’ the sea bottom is protected against destructive fishing methods and other damaging practises. This year the European ministers of Fisheries start a new European fisheries policy. This international Greenpeace campaign is executed to pressure the politicians, especially the responsible Dutch Secretary of State Henk Bleker to plead on European level for more marine reserves to secure the future of healthy seas and oceans. During 20 years politicians speak about protection of precious areas at sea but there have never been made any decisions to start with a policy to make it happen.
