Array phase information on the azimuth and elevation of fish schools allows for beam directivity corrections of target strength, determinations of school depth, and tracking of school movements. When corrected for beam pattern losses, the target strength of blue whiting Micromesistius poutassou and rockfish Sebastes spp. schools increased c3dB. -from Authors
