Target Strength and Remote Target Identification

The echo-integration method is the most efficient method for estimating the dispersions and abundances of fish and zooplankton over large areas of the ocean.  The principal challenges in accurate and precise application of this method are those associated with:

AST investigates and exploits the frequency dependence of sound scatter from fish and zooplankton having various distributions of sizes, shapes, orientations and morphological characteristics for their remote identification.
