Title: FEATS: Fundamental Estimations of Acoustic Target Strength

Project Year and Number: 2001: 01468-CLO

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: 1999: 99468-BAA, 1998: 98468-BAA

Principal Investigator (PI): Gary Thomas, Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences, U. Miami

Assisting Personnel: Jay Kirsch, Dick Thorne

Research Location:

Restoration Category: Research

Injured Resources Addressed: Pacific Herring

Abstract: This small amount of funding in FY 01 will allow for completion of the final report begun under Project 99468. In 1999, this project conducted cage experiments to determine the acoustic strength of herring and sand lance. Obtaining better definitions of target strength was essential to completion of work on two of the Trustee Council's major ecosystem projects, the Sound Ecosystem Assessment (SEA, Project /320) and the Alaska Predator Ecosystem Experiment (APEX, Project /163).
