Fish are difficult to monitor as if a human or a machine tries to invade their security they either destroy it or leave the habitat.

So for monitoring the fish in their natural habitat, researchers at the Glasgow University have developed RoboSalmon, which is a robotic fish meant to spy on real fish.

The RoboSalmon has built-in cameras to broadcast images of real fish back to the operators of the robot.

The key feature of this robotic fish is its propulsion system. The robot will use fins and tail for its movement so that it looks like a normal fish and its motors do not make noise to disturb the other fish around.

Any one going fishing this week end please beware not to catch this RoboSalmon because if you do it will cost you thousands of dollars to replace it...!
