Riverwatcher, Riverwatcher and more Riverwatcher

Two fine gentlemen from FISHBIO came for a few days’ visit to VAKI’s headquarters. Two fine gentlemen from FISHBIO came for a few days’ visit to VAKI’s headquarters.  Doug Demko and Ryan Cuthbert’s first stop after a long journey was to one of the many swimming pools in Reykjavík.
Later that day they went with Benni to see the installation in Elliðaár River, which is a true nature pearl within the city limits in the middle of Elliðarárdal valley.

On Monday we met at VAKI’s headquarters for a meeting and discussed the potential uses for Riverwatchers in the USA.

They went next with Hermann and Benni to site visits to see Riverwatcher installations in six different rivers: Úlfarsá, Leirvogsá, two counters in Langá River, Gljúfurá, Norðurá River and Laxá River í Leirársveit. This gave them the opportunity to see many different setups of the system in diverse locations.
During their stay the weather was beautiful and they mentioned how perfect the car looked in each place they visited: “Just like a car advertisement every time!”

Ryan was introduced to the Data Storage Tag (DST) system, which is a miniature data logger manufactured by Star-Oddi, in Reykjavík. The DST is exceptionally well suited for any research involving living subjects because of its biocompatible ceramic material.

This visit resulted from a seminar that was held in Sacramento in California this April.
