Simrad was one of the pioneers of cable-based trawl monitoring systems and is credited with introducing the world’s first trawl sonar in 1986. Since that time, Simrad has continued to bring innovation and excellence to the fishing industry.
Now, sustainability presents a new challenge in the 21st century. Maintaining fish stocks, minimizing environmental impact, and effective fisheries management are driving principles in the fishing industry today. As a result, the fishing industry demands tools that enable sustainable fishing.
The FX system is Simrad’s answer.
The Simrad FX system is an innovative and advanced catch monitoring system that allows you to monitor the fish activity inside your fishing gear using a live video stream, sonar, and sensors.
In addition to acoustically identifying species and fish size, our customers want to see what actually goes into the net and to be able to take action immediately to avoid bycatch. Trawl movement can be viewed in real time with the FX system. Fish behaviour can also be observed in real time, taking speculation and guess work out of the equation.
The system is expandable and can be interfaced with various compatible devices and sensors, including a camera, multibeam or single-beam sonar, mechanical bycatch release, hydrophone, catch-monitoring sensors, and a Pitch/Roll/Temp/Depth sensor.
