An evaluation of horizontal echo sounding as a method for behavioural studies of 0+fish in field experiments

Romare, Pia LU (2001) In Journal of Fish Biology 58(6). p.1512-1523
Abstract
A 120 kHz echo sounder, with two split-beam transducers, was used horizontally to monitor the behaviour of 0+ roach Rutilus rutilis, from June to August, in field enclosures. 0+ roach outside the vegetated area of the enclosures were registered both as schools and as single swimming fish. Combining echo counting and tracking with direct observation of echograms, an estimate of relative abundance of 0+ roach in the open water volume was obtained also. With this set up, intermediate sized field experiments studying 0+ fish, may be performed during the whole summer season. (C) 2001 The fisheries Society of the British Isles.
