We are proud to introduce the world s first quantitative multibeam sonar for fishery research applications.
The Simrad MS70 offers a new dimension to fishery research. It provides an acoustic matrix of stabilized and calibrated beams for biomass estimation, fish school characterization and behaviour studies.
The transducer array is normally mounted on a drop keel, which allows it to look horizontally. The Simrad MS70 allows characterization and volume estimation of a school of fish using only one single transmission. Schools of fish can be tracked, followed, and studied using multiple consecutive transmissions.
As a consequence of the horizontal transmission using narrow beams, the MS70 allows you to detect and characterize schools of fish even very close to the sea surface.
