A combination of visual inspection and live camera feed via a pole-cam was used in the survey. At each structure the pole-cam was lowered into the water and gently manoeuvred around the structure while the live feed was monitored on a screen. Live feed was recorded on a GoPro that was also attached to the pole so that footage could be played back for closer, clearer inspection of fouling.
