Ambassador uses TIMEZERO to collect and view research on the seafloor in Patagonia

We recently caught up with Scientist and TIMEZERO Ambassador who resides on the other side of the world in Patagonia to find out how he is getting on. He recently embarked on a mission to map the seafloor in Patagonia. More than just mapping it, he wants to get qualitative information on each area. Where are the ecosystems thriving and what effect trawler fishing is having on these areas. Funded by the local government and armed with TIMEZERO and underwater cameras, he is collecting a huge amount of information to provide an overall picture of the seafloor.

Can you introduce yourself?

My name is Gastón Trobbiani, I’m a marine biologist and currently studying a doctorate in the Center of Studies of Marine Systems (CESIMAR-CENPAT) with a grant from CONICET (National Technical and Scientific Investigations Advice) in the city of Puerto Madryn, Chubut, Argentina. My line of work is focused on the development of exploration tools and monitoring with remotely controlled cameras and using these tools to analyze and evaluate the impact that trawling has on the seafloor and their associated ecosystems.
