Abstract Sonars and echosounders are widely used for remote sensing of life in the marine environment. There is an ongoing need to make the acoustic identification of marine species more correct and objective and thereby reduce the uncertainty of acoustic abundance estimates. In our work, data from multi-frequency echosounders working simultaneously with nearly identical and overlapping acoustic beams are processed stepwise in a modular sequence to improve data, detect schools and categorize aco...

Abstract Northern blue whiting is a small abundant pelagic gadoid that is widely distributed in the northeast Atlantic and one of the most commercially valuable species west of the British Isles and Ireland. Over the last two decades the northeast Atlantic stock has undergone dramatic changes in abundance. The stock size decreased dramatically from 2007 to 2011, but has since shown signs of recovery. Changes in recruitment levels have occurred almost simultaneously with unusual changes in the no...

Walleye pollack (Gadus chalcogrammus) resources are abundant around Hokkaido in Japan. The acoustic survey of the walleye pollack using the quantitative echo-sounder has been performed around Hokkaido since 1995. The quantitative echo-sounder that is mainly used for this survey is the EK60 system consisting of GPT + ER60 software made by Simrad. On the other hand, EK80 system using the WBT has been released in 2015, and the acoustic survey will be conducted by EK80 system from now. Therefore, it...

Target identification remains a challenge for acoustic surveys of marine fauna. Antarctic krill, Euphausia superba, are typically identified through a combination of expert scrutiny of echograms and analysis of differences in mean volume backscattering strengths (SV; dB re 1 m鈭1) measured at two or more echosounder frequencies. For commonly used frequencies, however, the differences for krill are similar to those for many co-occurring fish species that do not possess swimbladders. At South Georg...

The ImageNet Large Scale Visual Recognition Challenge is a benchmark in object category classification and detection on hundreds of object categories and millions of images. The challenge has been run annually from 2010 to present, attracting participation from more than fifty institutions. This paper describes the creation of this benchmark dataset and the advances in object recognition that have been possible as a result. We discuss the challenges of collecting large-scale ground truth annotat...

AbstractSince 1998, the assessment model framework Bifrost/Captool has been used for advice on total allowable catch for the Barents Sea capelin (Mallotus villosus) stock. However, since the management is based on a target escapement strategy, and most capelin die after spawning, viewed in retrospect, there is hardly any possibility of checking whether the forecast underpinning the quota was actually realistic. The forecast using Captool for the period from 1 October up to capelin spawning time ...

Acoustic surveys often use multifrequency backscatter to estimate fish and plankton abundance. Direct samples are used to validate species classification of acoustic backscatter, but samples may be sparse or unavailable. A generalized Gaussian mixture model was developed to classify multifrequency acoustic backscatter when not all species classes are known. The classification, based on semi-supervised learning with class discovery, was applied to data collected in the eastern Bering Sea during s...

Johnsen, E., Pedersen, R., and Ona, E. 2009. Size-dependent frequency response of sandeel schools. - ICES Journal of Marine Science, 66: 1100-1105.Annual Norwegian sandeel surveys have been conducted in the North Sea since 2005 to measure the stock of lesser sandeel (Ammodytes marinus). Target identification is often a major challenge in acoustic surveys, and discriminant analyses have been used to separate echoes accurately from schools of herring, mackerel, and sandeel based on their acoustic-...

Recently, Simrad in collaboration with Ifremer developed a calibrated, multibeam, vertical echosounder (ME70) for fisheries research. We describe its capabilities and technical limitations. The ME70 has up to 45 beams with distinct frequencies in the range 70鈥120 kHz, spanning at most 150掳. All beams are stabilized in vessel roll and pitch. It has reduced side-lobe levels, up to 鈥70 dB (twoway) instead of the 鈥25 dB (one-way) of conventional systems. We outline research areas for which the ME70 ...
