Mike Jech and Gareth Lawson prep an acoustic tow

Sound Check

Mike Jech (left) of NOAA’s Northeast Fisheries Science Center in Woods Hole and WHOI biologist Gareth Lawson prepare to calibrate an acoustic towed body in Providence Harbor in January 2014. The scientists are testing a new acoustical sampling method using experimental Simrad wideband acoustic transceivers and acoustic transducers (seen here in orange). If successful, this new capability will allow scientists to conduct surveys of important prey species such as butterfish, squid, and krill.
