Guidelines for the preparation of hydroacoustic survey reports on krill
The proposed guidelines provide an opportunity to perform comparative analyses and checks of results obtained during echometric surveys of fish and krill, and to establish a data bank of these surveys. The unification of echometric survey data is aimed at increasing the effectiveness of research on the quantitative assessment of biomass of organisms.
The guidelines contain a description of requirements for the preparation of reports of echometric surveys. An example is provided of the preparation of a report of a hydroacoustic survey performed as part of FIBEX by the Soviet research vessel Odyssey during the period from January to March 1981 in the Scotia Sea, on polygon VI.
