Abstract
In a context of potential overexploitation of fisheries resources in the Sabana-Camagüey Archipelago (Cuba), the Cuban national authorities have expressed the need to collect more in situ information on fish of commercial interest in spawning areas. A newly developed low cost single-beam scientific echosounder has been recently acquired by the Cuban Fisheries Research Centre (CIP). In this work, we provide first results of a comparative analysis carried out in the Sabana-Camagüey Archipelago (Cuba), with the aim to evaluate the suitability of this type of echosounder as a tool for assessing fish aggregations in shallow waters. To this end, data acqui...
