Fisherman could benefit from better target detection, deeper depths and greater screen clarity with WASSP’s new F3X multibeam sounder featuring more energy and better processing than its previous F3 model.

With more power along with long pulse time that equates to more energy in the water, the WASSP F3X provides more clarity in shallow and medium depths of 50 to 500m. The F3X with the WASSP 80kHz transducer is able to operate as a sounder in depths of 1000m and provide mapping of the sea floor with Water Column Targets (fish) shown in 850m of water.

Rufus Whiteford, WASSP’s global marketing manager, commented: “WASSP has become an essential tool for many fishing vessels around the world. This new F3X with extra power, extra depth and extra performance will provide a whole new set of fishing boats with additional profit.”

Faster detection

The company explained that the model’s mapping can speed up the process of finding, evaluating and deciding what fish to target. This results in less wasted fuel and once a target has been decided on, WASSP will enable the operator to fish near obstacles without getting gear caught, while increasing efficiency and reducing the cost of fishing, added the company.

F3X comes as standard with WASSP’s patent pending Interference Management Systems (IMS) including AKP ready for install on complex vessels with several other sounders and sonars installed.
