After 2nd World War Simrad introduced the first Sonar to
the fishing world. Since then, the ways and means of fishing have
evolved to become technology based. And at the forefront of this
evolution, you’ll find Simrad. To lead in this technological change
is to shape the world of fishing and through ideas and innovations
Simrad has done just that.

Multi frequency - 20 to 30kHz!
On fishing vessels there are numerous
sources making noise, such as propellers,
generators, engines and other hydro
acoustic equipment. With multi frequency
from Simrad you are able to tune your
sonar for maximum performance and avoid
interference from own and other vessels.
The multi frequency comes very handy
in other situations as well; high and low
frequencies have different detection
ranges on different conditions and species.
Dual beam
Beam stabilization
The combination of the horizontal and
vertical beams display the school of fish
from above and from the side at the same
time. It is not necessary to go over the
target to see the vertical distribution on
the echosounder.
When the beam stabilizer is activated,
both the horizontal and vertical beams
will be electronically stabilized for roll and
pitch. The full circle beam stays on the
target independent of the vessel movement
even in rough seas.

Purse seine data
The seine indicator shows the time from when
the net was shot, the length of shot net, and
the total net length. Also the net sinking is
shown graphically. With a Simrad PI system
connected, the correct net depth and sink
rate will be shown in relation to the school
and the bottom.
The yellow purse seine symbol is set around
the school. The seine dimensions are entered
into the sonar for up to three different purse
seines. When using the PI system and depth
sensors, each mark will have depth and sink
rate values indicated on the screen next to
the markers.
Catch data
All the vital school data is available: Depth,
distance, bearing, speed, course, area and
volume in tons. In addition, the geographical
position in latitude and longitude can be
displayed when a GPS is connected.
Vertical view
A school of fish is detected and tracked by
the sonar. The school’s swimming speed,
direction and history are shown on the
horizontal view on the screen. This helps
the skipper to find the right time and
position for setting the net.
The vertical view is used for showing the
vertical distribution of the school. The tilt
angle indicator helps in optimizing the tilt
angle for the best picture in the horizontal
view. In automatic target tracking, the vertical
view remains locked on to the selected
target.

Simrad’s extensive experience in hydro acoustics has allowed
the development of the world’s most advanced echosounders for
professional fishermen.
The ES60 series has been designed with high performance at
any depth a priority. It is easier to use than many less sophisticated
instruments and offers flexible installation options with a variety of
display sizes to fit any bridge arrangement. By choosing various
modules, a customized system can be built to the owners need.

The ES60 echosounder is more
than one echo sounder, it is actually
several hundred echosounders.
This is because you can configure
the ES60 almost any way you want
starting with one frequency (at your
choice) and a single beam echosounder to a multipple frequency
split beam system. Picture shown
left displays a one frequency system
with the clarity and resolution only
known to the ES60. The windows
operation makes the ES60 very easy
to operate and enables you to configure the screen the way you want
with rezising the different windows
to suit your needs.
The most common dual frequency configuration is the 38/200
or 50/200 kHz systems using the
Simrad Combi transducers. However
any two frequencies can be chosen
to maximize the performance of your
fishery. The two frequencies can be
operated completely independent
with settings like gain, pulse length
and range set induvidually. You can
add on as many frequencies you
want and you can display up to
four frequencies at the same time.
The flexibility of the ES60 is
endless and by starting with a small
system you can add on frequencies
and more power as your fishery
develops.
In shallow water fishing or fishing
close to the surface you need a
transducer with a wide coverage
area. The Simrad Combi-Wide can
be interfaced with the ES60 making
it the perfect shallow water echosounder. This configuration is popular
among scallop and mussel draggers
as the resolution on the ES60 is
extreemly high giving you the details
of the bottom that you need. The
ES60 can output the bottom data on
an ethernet line to bottom hardness
systems capable of process such
information.

The Simrad Combi C and D transducers are a dual frequency 1kW
transducer, You can chose between
38/200kHz and 50/200kHz. Both
transducers has a narrow beam
(7X7° on 200kHz,10x16° on the
50kHz and 13x21° on the 38kHz).
The Combi-C is a perfect match
for the PI44 echosounder and the
Combi-D is widley used on the ES60.
Combi-W
Combi-W transducer
The Combi-W is a 38/200kHz
transducer with a 30° beam angle
on both frequencies. This is the first
transducer in the world with such a
wide beam angle making it perfect
for shallow water and close to the
surface fishing. The high resolution
you get from 200kHz is ideal for this
purpose and makes it unique in the
fishing industry.

The ES60 is the third generation split
beam echosounder from Simrad. With
the split beam you can determine the
size of the fish before you catch it. This
is vital for sustainable and profittable
fishery. The picture to the right shows
the information displayed on a ES60
split beam system. The biomass information tells you the density of the
fish concentration, the so called ”fuel
meter”.
Information from a ES60
split beam system
The bargraph is a distribution of the
fish sizes shown on the screen, here
the majority of the fish is larger than
25cm. The fish plot at the bottom is
widely used to detect fish close to
the bottom where the depth varies.
Sometimes ghost echoes are displayed
in the main picture looking like fish,
however, if it is not on the fish plot
you can be sure it is a ghost echo!
The bottom expansion shows large
concentration very close to the bottom and that the majority of the
larger fish is close to the bottom.
This is vital information for effecient
fishing. The size distribution can be
set to any layer of the water colum
to target the fish you are looking for.
Picture to the right shows a single
frequency, split beam configuration.
The echogram is showing a good
concentration of Cod larger than
32cm at depth down to over 200m.
Frequency is 38kHz which is a very
good allround frequency for various
depth and speices.

making it the most complete range
on the market today. The ES60 can
also be configured with a mixture
of split beam and single beam
frequencies.
Like the ES60 single beam the split
beam systems can also be configured
with multipple frequencies. Here a
large school of herring is shown using
38kHz and 120kHz both running on
split beam transducers. The Simrad
range of split beam frequencies are:

targeted fishing.
Here is another example of the
ES60 flexibility, this is the so-called
”pelagic setting” where the bottom is
of no interest. In order to focus on a

PI system provides you with vital information such as the stability of the
doors (door spread sensors), quality of your catch (catch sensors), efficiency
of your bottom trawl (bottom contact sensor) or correct time of purse
seining (depth/sink rate sensor). In addition the PI system has a built in
echosounder all in a compact cabinet.
The cabinet comes in three sizes PI32 (6”), PI44 (10”) and the PI54
(15”) where the PI32 can receive data from 3 sensors and the PI44/54
can receive data from 6 sensors at the same time. The quality of Simrad
echosounders is recognized all over the world and now it is integrated in
the PI system. Important features like bottom lock, shift function, pulse
length and White Line are standard features.
Main echosounder screen, showing trawl
lines starting where the trawl is and the

The Geometry Sensor has been designed
to vastly improve on the current symmetry
measurement systems, which use a single
sensor mounted on the head rope. The
existing systems measures water flow at
a small point on the trawl, meaning a few
millimetres incorrect mounting of the sensor
can cause large errors in the measurements.
From the main Geometry sensor mounted
on the middle of either the head or the foot
rope, you measure the distance to two transponders mounted on each door or wing ends.
This measurement will immediately tell you
if the trawl is skewed due to water current,
or incorrect warp lengths and will therefore
easily detect large or small changes in
the trawl geometry.

Spread sensors are vital to ensure correct rigging of the Trawl
or Twin Trawl. The stability of the doors is constantly and accurately
monitored with the PI spread sensors. Spread sensors monitor
the spread and stability between the doors on a single trawl while
the Twin Spread sensor is capable of monitoring the spread and
stability between doors and between port door and centre weight.

The Simrad PI Catch Monitoring system receives information from up to six
sensors at the same time. The system uses a hull mounted- or over the side
hydrophone. The net’s depth, water temperature and the important bottom
contact information are displayed in large digits or easy to understand graphics.
The Simrad PI system is designed with different codes to avoid interference
between vessels operating close together. The small size, quick update rate,
long battery life and its longrange capability, allows the PI system to be installed
on any size net, from a small sardine net to a large tuna net.
The PI system intefaces to the latest professional Simrad echosounders and
sonars, enabling this vital information to be viewed on the same screen.

The new Simrad FS Trawl system provides the full picture by utilizing the
ultimate FS third wire system with PI sensors integration. This sophisticated
solution enables the fisherman to have full control of any type of trawl fishery.
The system provide real-time images from the trawl sonar head and the
data from the PI sensors to the bridge, thus maximizing the quality of the
catch and increasing effeciency at sea.
A major benefit of the third wire integrted with
PI sensors is to prevent loss of communication
with the trawl as the vessel is changing course
or in heavy sea conditions.

By installing a PI cabinet and hydrophone,
you have a complete back up system for
catch indicators and other sensors. It is
now possible to get trawl height, door
spread, catch and depth information from
the wireless sensors by implementing
the receiver from the wireless PI system
into the third wire FS system. In addition
all the data from the wireless sensors
can be received wireless by the vessel
making it the ultimate back up system if
the third wire breaks.
