Paper Abstract

Airborne lidar is being considered as a tool for fish detection and for fisheries surveys. Detection has been demonstrated, and an imaging lidar has been developed to detect and identify fish for commercial fisheries. For survey work, a simpler radiometric lidar is being investigated, and preliminary results suggest that such a lidar can be very useful for biomass estimation.
