Abstract

The field of nekton and plankton acoustics is expanding with the development of new hardware and software and their applications. A symposium on nekton and plankton acoustics was held at the American Fisheries Society Annual Meeting in Monterey, CA, 1997. New and standardized measurement techniques to identify and classify nekton and plankton aggregations, and to estimate density, swimming speed and other target characteristics were presented. As the conservation community and the general public becomes more aware of the need to improve nekton and plankton measurement capability in fisheries science, there will be a growing demand for interdisciplinary research, development and education between the fields of physics and biology.
