Data storage tag

data storage tag (DST), also known as an archival tag , is a data logger that uses sensors to record data. Data storage tags usually have a large memory size and a long lifetime. Most archival tags are supported by the world. Permitted some tags are solar powered and allow the scientist to set their own interval; this battery can be used for significantly longer than battery-only powered tags.

Benthic area

The benthic zone is the ecological region of the lowest level of a body of water such as an ocean or a lake , including the sediment surface and some sub-surface layers. Living organisms in this area are called benthos , eg the benthic invertebrate community, including crustaceans and polychaetes . [1] The whole world is permanently attached to the bottom. The superficial layer of the soil, the benthic boundary layer, is an integral part of the benthic zone, as it greatly influences the biological activity that takes place there. Examples of touch soil layers include sand bottoms, rocky outcrops, coral , and bay mud .

Age class structure

Age class structure in fisheries and wildlife management is a part of population assessment. Age class structures can be used to model many populations include trees and fish. This method can be used to predict the occurrence of forest fires within a forest population. [1] Age can be determined by counting growth rings in fish scales, otoliths , cross-sections of end spines for species with thick spines such as triggerfish, or teeth for a few species. Each method has its merits and drawbacks. Fish scales are easiest to obtain, but may be unreliable if they have fallen into the sea. Spines end may be unreliable for the same reason, and most fish do not have visible weight. Otoliths will have stayed with the fish throughout its life history. Also, otoliths often require more preparation before aging.

Acoustic tag

Acoustic tags are small sound-emitting devices that allow the detection and / or remote control of fish in three dimensions for fisheries research. Acoustic telemetry (including acoustic tags) are commonly used to monitor the behavior of fish. Studies can be conducted in lakes , rivers , tributaries , estuaries or at sea . Acoustic tag tracking technology allows researchersto view 3D fish tracks in real-time with sub-meter resolution. Acoustic tags have been employed to help public utilities, private firms, and state and federal agencies as defined by the Federal Regulations and Oversight of Energy known as FERC .

Acoustic survey in fishing

Acoustic survey in fishing is one of the research methods that can detect the presence of acoustic transducers . For example, Many pelagic fisheries are very Generally scattered over a broad ocean and difficulty to detect. Thus, the survey vessel with acoustic detector emits sound waves to estimate the density of plankton and fish shoal . Generally speaking , the transducer is one of the following, which is linked to an echo sounder in the vessel which records the shoals of fish as “marks” on a screen or paper trace. Then the density and number of marks are converted into biomass. [1] Continue reading “Acoustic survey in fishing”
