Robotic fish with tiny chemical sensors are being developed to hunt out potentially hazardous pollutants in water bodies in the U.K.

The project, funded by the European Commission, will develop fish that will have autonomous navigation capabilities, enabling them to swim around a harbour without human interaction. They can also return automatically to a hub to be recharged when their batteries run low. BMT Group is coordinating the three-year project.
