Scientists in the Habitat Ecology Team in SWFSC's Fisheries Ecology Division have pioneered the development and use of Laser Line Scan (LLS) as an underwater optical imaging technology that shows promise for rapid, high-resolution habitat mapping. The LLS could bridge the gap between in-situ observations and imaging with side scan sonar or multibeam acoustic systems to improve our understanding of deep-water fish habitats.
