The Masfjorden sediment trap was initially located using the echo-sounder and a ROV from ROVas was deployed to help retrieve the sediment trap.
The sediment trap floats were visible in the echo-sounder.

Leon made a hook and line for the ROV to secure the sediment trap. The ROV would attached it using the manipulator arm. Once attached the sediment trap could be lifted using Solvik´s winch.
