|Increases in Modern Pelagic and Semi-Pelagic Trawling
Operations worldwide have produced a need for trawl net monitoring systems. Larger and more expensive trawl gear puts new demands on trawl sonars and catch control systems.
WESMAR's Trawl Catch Sonar
Our trawl sonar is a third wire system that combines forward looking and profiling in one headrope unit. Its split screen feature allows measurement of the net opening, profile of fishing circle, door spread and other gear geometry. Catch sensors continuously indicate the amount of fish in the codend.
More Information Means Increased Efficiency
Today’s captains receive a wealth of information from WESMAR's Trawl Catch Sonar. This information enables them to increase catching efficiency through shorter tows and reduced fuel consumption. Gear damage is also reduced by avoiding rough bottom and overfilling of the net.
