Abstract We have experienced that fish detection in sonar-data from horizontally aligned transducers in shallow water can be difficult. Studying recorded material revealed that echoes from fish often took on high ping to ping variations in variables like pulse length, intensity, shape and phase. Common single-echo detection methods based on a set of echo criteria tended to overlook echoes from fish. At the same time echoes from unwanted targets and fluctuations in the background reverberation was accepted. Hence, tracking and fish counting became difficult. To overcome these problems, we have developed a detection method based on 2-dimensional low-pass filters. By adjusting the cut-off frequency in the time and range domain, noise can be removed, ping to ping variation in signals from fish reduced, and local background reverberation level can be found. By subtracting the echo intensity in the filtered echograms, traces from fish can be detected.

targets and stationary targets are detected. Counting samples along the rim of each cluster gives the perimeter. General differences in the perimeter between the three main target types enable us to remove clusters of samples from noise and stationary targets such as stones. Stone Example of detected clusters.

Rimov reservoir (Cz) X Conclusion Tests presented here and in the accompanying article demonstrates that the Cross-filter detector (CFD) is better suited for fish detection than the traditional single echo detector.

The CFD detected significantly more echoes from the targets. The CFD significantly reduced the number of noise echo detections. The output from the CFD was better suited for tracking than the output from the SED.
