The integration of AI into underwater cameras has minimized distortions in the pictures captured, providing an innovative solution for conducting ocean research. In March 2020, Alphabet Inc. launched Tidal, an AI camera system that leverages computer vision to monitor fish populations. The company’s X experimental division’s Tidal team focuses on making fish farming more sustainable by efficiently inspecting fish population and identifying & monitoring individual fish in the huge population of fish farm. The system uses a combination of underwater camera technology and machine learning to track environmental conditions, fish behaviors and health of salmon over time.

According to the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), international tourist arrivals globally is estimated to decline by 20–30% in 2020. This will lead to declining the demand for underwater cameras among travelers. In addition, stringent lockdowns imposed during the first quarter of 2020 that impacted the manufacturing and R&D capabilities of players, limiting the market growth. However, with the gradual reopening of facilities following the relaxations in lockdown rules, the market will regain traction.
