Measuring fish activities as additional environmental data during a hydrographic survey with a multi-beam echo sounder

Abstract : The modern multi-beam echo sounders (MBES) are advanced instrumentation for active underwater acoustic surveys that can be boarded on oceanic vessels as well on light crafts. Although their versatility allows scientists to perform various environmental studies, their potential is seldom fully exploited. A single data acquisition cruise is not only able to display the seabed backscatter, but also provide an estimation of the fish activities from an underwater site thanks to water column imagery. This work is aiming at developing some (automatic) signal processing techniques to detect, analyse and classify objects observed in the water column with a focus on fish activities to provide fish accumulation and classification but also some comparative analyses along with the seafloor classification.
