Abstract:

The long-term goal of this program is to quantify, understand, and visualize acoustic backscatter from fish. Our strategy integrates numeric backscatter models with computer visualizations and compares model predictions to laboratory and field measurements. Objectives of this project include modeling acoustic backscatter from individual and aggregations of fish integrating fish anatomy, orientation, ontogeny, and behavior in predictions of acoustic backscatter comparing acoustic technologies used to quantify fish distributions and abundance and visualizing acoustic backscatter from individual and aggregations of fish.
