Marport Trawl Explorer

Provides an overall picture of the trawl: water depth from the surface to the sounder, distance from headrope to seabed, footrope and fish echoes passing beneath headrope.

The trawlexplorer should be attached with the "forward" Uplink Transducer pointing in the direction of trawl towards the vessel so that the aft looking Altimeter Transducer is pointing aft towards the cod-end and the EchoSounder transducer looking down providing an echogram of fish passing beneath the headrope. The Trawlexplorer should be attached to the top of the trawl behind the headrope.
