Paper Abstract

NOAA is developing an airborne lidar system for marine fisheries. It measures the direct backscatter of green light from objects, including fish, in the water column. We can, in fact, see fish from an airplane with this lidar. The lidar is described, and examples of fish signatures are presented. Other products are maps of the spatial distribution of fish and vertical profiles of biomass; examples of these are also presented.
