If this article is to be believed then shoals of robotic fish could be used to detect water pollution. The fish which have been nicknamed robofish would be used in ports and harbours in Wales to detect pollution in slow moving water. The fish are just one of the ideas that have been put forward at the first marine sustainability conference in Bangor. A shoal of the fish will be tested off the coast of Spain in 2011 as part of a three year project which if successful could see them coming to a harbour near you.
