Acoustic Survey Stations in the North Atlantic
|Data holding centre||Marine Institute|
North Atlantic Ocean. Celtic Sea. West coast of Ireland.
Date and time; Fish and shellfish catch statistics
Pelagic trawl nets; acoustic tracking systems
Acoustic surveys are generally carried out on spawning and pre-spawning aggregations of fish. Outside of the spawning season many pelagic species are generally very scattered over a large geographical area and difficult to detect using acoustic methods. A cruise track is first formulated with data from previous surveys, commercial catch data and the help of the fishermen and fishing industry. This is the spatial dataset of haul locations undertaken during survey.
