In addition to that, the amphibian flying craft will be able to alight on the sea surface and collect water samples. The samples will be sent out to an expert lab at the CUT, which will extract the needed results within 24 hours. The patrols will be conducted twice every week, while the drone may need to fly out if urgently needed. The cost will be covered be the Limassol Municipality and the Fishery Department, joined by the Yermasoyia Municipality and Agios Tychon Community Council.
