Fisheries acoustics

Fisheries Acoustics includes a range of research and practical application topics and scientific endeavors using acoustical devices as sensors in aquatic environments. Acoustical techniques can be applied to sensing aquatic animals, zooplankton, and physical and biological habitat characteristics.
