This book provides thorough coverage of the subject with particular emphasis on practical acoustic methods for fish assessment. The book covers the underlying principles and current applications in fisheries research and outlines the advantages and limitations of acoustic methods. It includes important information relating to practical problems of survey design, execution, and interpretation and is illustrated using examples drawn from acoustic surveys on commercially important fish species from many areas of the world.
This very useful guide is now in its second considerably improved and updated edition ... highly recommended. (Work Boat World, October 2008) "The new volume of Fisheries Acoustics captures the advances in the technology associated with the use of acoustics to find, classify, size, enumerate, examine the behaviour of, and help manage various types of fish."(Reviews in Fisheries Science, November 2006) "A thorough treatment of the acoustic instruments, sophisticated displays, and microprocessor-based signal processing used throughout the world to map the distribution of fish, estimate biomass, locate fish shoals, monitor fish movement, and study fish behavior. Emphasizes the practical methods for assessing fish stock; also discusses the design, execution, and interpretation of surveys, drawing from examples in many parts of the world."(Book News (SciTech Book News), September 2005) "If you really want to know how depth sounders, sonars and their ilk work, you need this book. If you want to learn how to use your fish finding equipment more effectively, you need it even more."(Ausmarine) "This textbook is an essential reference for professionals involved with the design and use of acoustic equipment for assessing fisheries and plankton populations...this book will be an invaluable tool for any practitioner or researcher requiring an understanding of the fundamentals of fisheries acoustics.the modernised edition is timely and welcome"(Reviews in Fish Biology and Fisheries (2007), 17:633-634)
