Fish Tracking module

The Fish Tracking module allows you to:

  • Detect and analyze tracks of individual fishes and other targets from single and split beam data.
  • Count fishes and examine their behavior.

This module is particularly useful for data collected from fixed transducers in rivers, as well as mobile transducers in lakes and marine waters.
