We are an Australian company with a growing international reputation
focusing on the design and servicing of high quality underwater
electronics used in harsh environments.
BlueZone has been pleased to support many aquaculture customers over many years as the aquaculture industry has grown in Australian seas. A wide product portfolio with experience in many application areas enables BlueZone to provide aquaculture customers with the best value and right technology for challenges in this fast-growing industry.
The ocean is a very harsh environment for deployment of equipment and components and designs that attempt to “cut corners” inevitably do not meet user expectations for performance, functionality and reliability. We base our experience and advice on what we know works from working with customers in applications ranging from offshore oil & gas to oceanographic science and hydrographic survey, and on feedback from our current customers in the aquaculture industry. Let our experience guide you in the selection of the best products for your application.
Our capability in aquaculture extends to our experience in developing systems, specialised products and engineering for subsea applications. We have completed the design and manufacture of systems for control and monitoring which have been demonstrated to perform in the harshest of conditions. For more information on our engineering capability see the BlueZone Engineered tab and we would be happy to discuss your specific application for underwater technology in aquaculture.

Getting your equipment back in the field fast is our aim if you ever have a breakdown, accident or other problems.
Reliability when working in extremely remote locations is a key reason for selecting the Seaeye Falcon for aquaculture applications. The Seaeye Falcon is rated the top underwater robotic vehicle in class worldwide.
Along with inspecting nets and moorings, Falcons fitted with manipulators can be deployed to perform light work tasks around fastenings and buoys, as well as collecting and recovering items.
The Seaeye Falcon DR can be fitted with a five-function manipulator and soft rope cutter, a Kongsberg HDTV camera, B&W reverse camera, a BlueView multi-beam sonar and an Applied Acoustic high-end USBL.
The success of the Falcon for aquaculture work comes from its reassuring reliability, favoured by their pilots for working in isolated locations and its power, agility and steadiness in strong cross currents and harsh conditions whilst heavily loaded with equipment.
The Falcon’s world-winning concept comes from having created a highly reliable vehicle packed with five powerful thrusters and Saab Seaeye’s iCON™ intelligent power and distributed control architecture, all fitted into an easily handled metre-sized vehicle that can adopt different tools and sensors for undertaking numerous intricate and demanding tasks.
