"G.O.Sars" is a Norwegian fishery research vessel. It is equipped with scientific echo sounders and sonars from Simrad.
"G.O.Sars" is the latest research vessel owned and operated by the Institute of Marine Research (IMR) and the University of Bergen (UIB), both in Norway.
According to the Institute of Marine Research (IMR), the "G.O.Sars" represents a new generation of marine research vessels. By means of vibration- and noise-damped diesel generators and propellers driven by direct current motors, "G.O.Sars" is extremely quiet. It emits 99 percent less noise under water than conventional research vessels. Further, the "G.O.Sars" is one of the most advanced research vessels in the world.
