Description 
Summary

A high resolution sonar (DIDSON) was used to record the fish community in the vicinity of the monopiles. It is a good instrument for estimating the abundance of fish around the piles and to study the behaviour fish around the piles, although from the images of the DIDSON it is not possible to identify all fish species.
