Use of high resolution sonar for near-turbine fish observations (DIDSON) - We@Sea 2007-002

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

Abstract

In this study we investigate small scale distribution of pelagic fish within a windfarm by means of a high resolution sonar (DIDSON, Dual frequency IDentification SONar; Soundmetrics). In addition we assess the bias of small scale variations induced by the effects of wind turbines (monopiles) on distribution of the pelagic fish community in the hydro acoustic surveys carried out on the OWEZ Near Shore Wind farm (NSW).
