Water corp probes nature reserve dams in the Himalayas
Tunikiri-Deltas are specialised marine robots capable of capturing and releasing small fish using only one stroke.
“Fish do not always return to the surface, but in a small amount,” Todaro Saha, head of the research into marine robots at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research in Nagpur told AFP.
He had earlier said the fish were more sensitive to shock and could even move on their own if kept alive for long enough.
The marine robotic system was developed for the UN special rapporteur on extreme poverty, Filippo Grandi, in 2013, and has recently been applied to more remote waters.

The machines are guided by GPS속초출장마사지 using sensors and cameras mounted on their backs. The fish can then be taken to shallow waters, the researchers said.
Researchers at the New Delhi institute recently launched a study on capturing fish using fish-killer technology.
According to a study published in the in전주출장샵ternational journal Science in 2013, scientists with the NIS had captured a variety of fish species, ranging from fish that could withstand the high temperatures on remote reefs, to those whose life was threatene여수출장마사지d due to climate change or their habitat was being devastated by commercial fishing.
While some fish could live for up to two years in a single capture, others could survive only two years, the scientists said.
The technique can also help keep fish healthy in a population.
A further study, involving more than 120 scientists including some from universities across India, found that fish were less likely to suffer from mortality when they could be released from capture devices.
The researchers said the technology could be used “very strategically to improve the quality of fish stocks, improve the quantity of fish caught and potentially help ensure the survival of species”.
