BioSonics offers unique and innovative solutions to monitor fish passage and assess behavioral impacts on aquatic animals including marine mammals, fish, and diving birds.
BioSonics sonar systems are often installed in fixed-position deployments to observe the underwater environment over a period of weeks, months or even years at a time. Such long-term observations are essential in monitoring changes in the behavior and for assessing fluctuations in the abundance of aquatic animals.
Applications for this technology include water intakes, marine and hydrokinetic turbine installations, spillways, screens, and fish bypass structures where concerns are raised about the impacts of operations on aquatic species. BioSonics has extensive experience designing and deploying hydroacoustic monitoring systems for a wide range of project applications; from traditional hydroelectric to nuclear power to the emerging ocean renewable energy industry.
