SeapiX-F

3D multibeam sonar for fishery
schéma

Overview

SeapiX-F is the first compact civilian system comprising a dual Steerable Mills Cross multibeam sonar transducer. It carries out real-time full 3D biomass assessment and bathymetry from shallow to deep waters and provides unique sea-tested fish classification results for demersal or pelagic species. Thus with real-time visualization and realistic quantitative and qualitative biomass distribution, skippers can make strategic fishing decisions and conduct more efficient and selective fishing operations.

CLASSIFIES FISHES IN REAL-TIME

  • Calibrated TS split beam in all beams allowing qualitative fish sampling for all individual detections from the whole volume
  • Classification by species in GBA analyzer
  • Species and abundances shown by area, layers or duration to trawl gear

CORRELATES SEABED, BIOMASS AND GEAR WITH VESSEL NAVIGATION

  • Data merged into 2D/3D navigation plotter
  • SideScan views to understand roughness of bottom with fish from Port to Starboard
  • 2D and 3D synthetic view to help decision-making for maneuvering
