Details

The SondeCAM mini is a compact underwater camera ideal for professional anglers, fishery managers and researchers looking to identify fish habitat and profile submerged structures. SondeCAM mini is smaller and lighter than other SondeCAM models, allowing it to easily be towed behind a boat or maneuvered with a pole attachment. The camera features an ultra-compact low-Lux image sensor for clear color visuals at a resolution of 520 TV lines.

SondeCAM can operate in marine or freshwater environments at depths up to 300 feet. An anodized aluminum body with hydrodynamic contours protects the camera from rusting and saltwater corrosion. The power and signal cable is based on a high-flex design with abrasion-resistant polyurethane jacket. Heavy-duty plastic caps on the front and rear of the SondeCAM withstand impacts, and a scratch-resistant lens ensures continued performance even after rough deployments.

The low-light camera performs well in a range of aquatic conditions and is powered directly from a boat's 12VDC power source using the included adapter cable. SondeCAM models are compatible with a long list of fishfinders and chartplotters, making it a convenient and economical way to view underwater video. Compatible fishfinders/chartplotters include Lowrance, Raymarine, and Garmin models with video input via RCA or BNC connector.

Army Corps of Engineers Protects River Wildlife

A complex series of locks and dams up and down the Ohio River enable interstate commerce, travel and recreation by maintaining a usable pathway for watercraft, but come with the inevitable byproducts of disrupting the river’s natural systems. To combat this, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers uses a complex monitoring and response technology designed to minimize the negative impacts of dredging on the river ecosystem. Steven Foster, a limnologist with the Corps Water Quality Team, works at the Robert C. Byrd Lock and Dam in Gallipolis Ferry, West Virginia. He said one key area he focuses on is the welfare of mussels in the river. River dredging can smother mussel beds, so Foster and the team of engineers monitor the beds to ensure their safety.

Researchers Track Glacial Meltwater On Its Surprising Journey

While the scientific community has formed its consensus on how ice sheets are shrinking in and around Greenland, some researchers are tracking what happens to the meltwater as it drains into the ocean each summer. Their study, published in Nature Geoscience by an interdisciplinary team of biologists, oceanographers and hydrologists, used computer models to simulate the meltwater to see where currents take it and what effect it could have on the ocean. Renato Castelao, one of the researchers and an associate professor of marine science for the University of Georgia, said one of the biggest discoveries of the study was the surprising final destinations of the ice sheets as they melt into the ocean each summer.

Ice Fishing With A SondeCAM Underwater Fishing Camera

Thinking of hitting the ice with a SondeCAM underwater fishing camera? Due to its rugged design, you won't have to worry about it handling the harsh elements. However there are a few simple tricks to get the most out of a FishSens SondeCAM while ice fishing. You won't have to do anything to modify the SondeCAM itself, but you are going to have to bring a few extra things. Most importantly we are going to need a power source. Unless you are hauling your gear with a truck, you'll want something more portable than the battery you used in the boat. Pick up an inexpensive and maintenance-free 12-volt, 9-amp battery. It is going to provide plenty of power, but will be much lighter and take up less space.
