Saildrone

Ocean robots help NOAA assess fishery health

Two unmanned sailboats set out from Neah Bay on Tuesday, beginning a 100-day trek that will take them to Vancouver Island and all the way down to Mexico. Fisheries scientists with the National Atmospheric and Oceanic Administration (NOAA) hope that these Saildrones will help them better assess key Pacific fisheries such as hake, anchovies, and sardines.
