Taking initiative to clean the oceans
Blue technologies are cutting-edge devices and software that aim to monitor and clean our oceans environmentally. At Seaside, we have integrated blue technology into some of our education programs and have formed partnerships to support the use of these devices. We firmly believe blue technology is the future of sustainable oceans, and we take action to ensure these products are supported.
Seaside Sustainability has become an agent of Seabin, and has acquired a FiFish underwater drone for educational use. Seaside has also incorporated the use of two additional aquadrones into its field work and educational programs.
Seaside sustainability contributes to Cape Ann Maritime Partnership, which has bought and maintained two Seabins and a Skimmer in the local area. Each passively collects marine debris, with the Skimmer, lovingly called Skimmy, located at the Gloucester Maritime Museum and able to collect larger quantities of debris than the Seabin.
