Collection of Fish Weight Data Using Motion-Compensated Scales
Monday, 11 October 2010 14:55

The weight of fish collected in samples taken by observers on longliners and purse seiners is usually determined from the length of the fish, which can be a source of error. However, it may be possible to collect the weight of fish directly using scale that compensate for the motion of the vessel at sea. Trials are currently ongoing on purse seiners in Papua New Guinea with a Marel M1100 motion-compensated scale.
