Depth measurements provide you
with accurate information about the current depth of the sensor. If
you for example place the sensor behind the headrope, you will be
able to monitor the depth of the headrope. The functionality provided
by the Simrad catch monitoring system will also allow you to monitor
the depth changes, so that you can make relevant adjustments whenever
On a bottom trawl, you can use
the sensor to achieve full control when shooting, and to position
the trawl on the slope.
trawling, you know how important it is to position the trawl relative
to the largest concentration of fish. By using a depth sensor, you
can monitor the exact depth of the gear relative to the surface, and
adjust the trawl depth accordingly. Additional depth sensors on the
doors can be used to monitor if the doors stay at the same depth.
During seining, use the depth sensor to monitor
the depth of the net, and the descending speed of the net. Then you
will know when to start pursing, and which speed to use.
Mounted on a Danish Seine the depth sensor monitors the
sinking speed of the net, and it will tell you when to start hauling
once the net has stopped sinking.
