They have been using cameras to document fish behavior in dense and invasive plants like hydrilla, and their approaches will likely be very valuable in advising conservation plans. Hydrilla has been a big problem for Florida, which spent $14 million a year throughout the 2000s to manage it. Now, however, researchers and conservation managers can use these cameras to get hard data on which fish area doing in areas densely populated by plants like this.
