Dwelling assets of the ocean and clean water have lengthy been a major resource of meals and financial task. With fish shares carrying on with to be over-exploited, there's a transparent specialize in fisheries administration, to which acoustic equipment can and do make a big contribution.

The moment variation of this time-honored ebook covers the numerous technological advancements that have happened because the first version; hugely subtle sonar and machine processing apparatus provide nice new possibilities and Fisheries Acoustic, 2e presents the reader with a greater knowing of the way to interpret acoustic observations and positioned them to functional use.

  • Well recognized and revered authors
  • Emphasis on sensible acoustic methods
  • Detailed assurance of a commercially and environmentally very important subject

A very important device for fisheries scientists, fisheries oceanographers, environmental biologists, ecologists, inhabitants biologists, fish biologists, and marine biologists. All these concerned with layout and use of acoustic gear. Libraries in examine institutions, executive stations and universities the place fisheries technological know-how is studied or taught will locate this a welcome boost to their shelves.
