Title: FEATS: Fundamental Estimations of Acoustic Target Strength
Project Year and Number: 1999: 99468-BAA
Principal Investigator (PI): Gary Thomas, Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences, U. Miami
Research Location: Prince William Sound
Restoration Category: Research
Injured Resources Addressed: Pacific Herring
Abstract: To scale acoustic survey data from relative units (dB) to absolute units (kg/m3), knowledge of the individual fish's target strength (TS) by size is required. This project will conduct experiments to measure the TS of Pacific herring and sand lance in Prince William Sound. FY 99 will concentrate on the development of experimental apparatus and experimental logistics and the application of these to measure Pacific herring TS and sand lance TS. TS-to-length regressions will be calculated and applied to past surveys in Prince William Sound to obtain more accurate density and biomass estimates, and will serve future acoustic survey efforts of these species in coastal Alaska.
