Abstract:

The use of towed enclosures, commonly called fish, makes it practical for vessels without hull transducers to be readily equipped for bathymetric studies and enables those with hull transducers to place transducers deep enough to reduce noise and avoid quenching in heavy weather. A fish is described which is compact, light, can be towed from a variety of tow cables and is suitably stable when towed at a wide range of tow speeds. Author
