Webinar: Establishing Baselines for Benthic Habitat and Fish Populations on the West Florida Shelf via the Power of Combined Visual and Acoustic Technologies

Webinar: Establishing Baselines for Benthic Habitat and Fish Populations on the West Florida Shelf via the Power of Combined Visual and Acoustic Technologies

Join SECOORA on July 28 at Noon ET for a webinar led by a team from the University of South Florida College of Marine Science. The team will present mapping products that pair in situ towed video imagery with sonar bathymetric data to define habitat types and calculate the relative and absolute densities of biota. These mapping products have considerable utility in defining essential fish and protected species habitats, for locating and assessing potential marine protected areas, and for identifying areas that should be excluded for consideration from offshore development activities.
