Understanding of hydrographic conditions is considered essential in many fisheries. Detailed observation and utilization of such data is now making inroads in fisheries that previously have made little use of these resources.
Fiskevegn has data recorders for salinity, depth and temperature (CTDs) as well as tilt/orientation loggers and sound velocity. Data recorders are used to study vertical profiles of the water column, sinking rate of fishing gears, dynamic behaviour of fishing gears and mechanical equipment, and for corrections of sonar observations.
Fiskevegn is an international distributor of Star Oddi data storage tags for the fishing sector.
