Marport's latest acoustic products set new standards for deep sea fisheries.
Over the years fishermen have used many different techniques to find and harvest fish. However, acoustic technology is one of the most important forces driving the developments in the modern commercial fisheries. Acoustic technology is especially well suited for fish finding applications since sound travels farther and faster underwater than in air. Sound waves travel differently through fish than through water because a fish's air-filled swim bladder has a different density than seawater. This density difference allows the detection of fish schools by analyzing the reflected sound. 04 May 2006 - World Fishing & Aquaculture
