        abstract:  ME70 data collected during the NOAA ship Oscar Dyson summer 2011 Gulf of Alaska pollock survey.
        purpose:  Scientists from the Midwater Assessment and Conservation Engineering (MACE) Program of the Alaska Fisheries Science Center's (AFSC) Resource Assessment and Conservation Engineering (RACE) Division routinely conduct acoustic-trawl (AT) stock assessment surveys to estimate the distribution and abundance of walleye pollock (Theragra chalcogramma). The summer 2011 cruise onboard NOAA Ship Oscar Dyson was conducted from June 9, 2011 to August 9, 2011 in the western-central Gulf fo Alaska. Acoustic data was collected using Simrad EK60 scientific echosounder and Simrad ME70 multibeam echosounder systems mounted on the hull of the Oscar Dyson. The purposes of the cruise included the collection of acoustic and trawl data necessary to determine the distribution, biomass, and biological composition of walleye pollock and other major fish species; calibrate the EK60 and ME70 acoustic systems using standard sphere calibration techniques; collect physical oceanographic data (temperature and salinity profiles) at selected sites, and continuously collect sea surface temperature and salinity data; conduct trawl hauls (AWT, PNE, and Methot) to ground truth multi-frequency echo integration data collection; collect data on fish distributions and school characteristics and the seafloor using the ME70 multibeam echosounder.

The multibeam echo sounder combines the large and flexible sampling volume of the multibeam swath with the accuracy of the quantitative scientific echo sounder. A bathymetric option is also available to provide a high resolution seabed mapping capability, and the possibility to study the fish habitat.

                description:  The Simrad EK60 Scientific Sounder system is a new generation fishery researchtool, based on experience from the EK500. The new electronic hardware is combined with up to date PC processing and Windows operation. The EK60 provides facilities for accurate echo sounding, data storage, data analysis and reporting results. The system communication is through Ethernet, which gives flexibility in the location of the EK60 system units and allows easy access to data from other instruments or stations on a vessel network. A post processing software, BI60, is also included in the EK60 system.

                description:  The Simrad ES60 is an echo sounder capable of single, dual or split beam configurations. It is designed as a professional fish finder for fishing vessels and for fisheries surveys onboard research vessels. It can operate four echo sounder frequencies simultaneously ranging from 12 to 200 kHz, which allows it to both locate and identify separate fish species. Real time echo integration and target strength analysis in an unlimited number of layers is provided as well as storage of raw data for replay or analysis in post-processing software packages.
