BioSonics is a pioneer in unique deployment methods for surveying in the most challenging environments and a developer of unique software for habitat mapping and real-time, automated ? sheries data processing

BioSonics ? rst introduced ? xed-location hydroacous- tic ? sh monitoring in 1980. BioSonics introduced the mobile scienti? c echosounder in the mid ’80s and since evolved the technology to the current DT-X Digital and MX Habitat series. Systems can be con? gured for mobile, automated ? xed-position, and submersible autonomous deployments. BioSonics echosounders are used in all aquatic environments where accurate assess- ment of marine life abundance, distribution or behavior is required. Versatile, rugged designs allow for use in every environment imaginable. Technical staff includes cooling water intakes, with several systems now in use
