With its large four-digit LCD display (measuring 4.3 inchesx 4.3 inches x 3.5 inches), rugged water-resistant construction and advanced features, Si-Tex's SST-110 is ideal for a wide range of recreational and commercial fishing vessels.
An affordable, waterproof, analog sea surface temp instrument with LARGE digital numbers that can literally be seen from 15 to 20 feet away. With its large four-digit LCD display (measuring 4.3 inchesx 4.3 inches x 3.5 inches), rugged water-resistant construction and advanced features, Si-Tex's SST-110 is ideal for a wide range of recreational and commercial fishing vessels. It can be easily installed on the flybridge of a large sportfisherman or on the instrument panel of a 17-foot open center console. It has the ability to view water temperature at a glance (in 0.01-degree Fahrenheit/Celsius resolution), find favorable temperature zones and pinpoint critical off-shore temp breaks. For maximum accuracy and to compensate for slight differences in transducers, the displayed temperature can be easily calibrated by the operator using the SST-110's front panel keys. Boaters can also set high and low temperature alarms for audible alerts to temperature fl uctuations or hard temperature edges. A temperature trend arrow on the display tells the user at a glance if sea temperatures are getting warmer, cooler or remaining constant.
For operation in any onboard environment or ambient light conditions, the SST-110 offers five levels of backlighting that can be selected and remotely switched On/Off . All set up and calibration constants are saved to a nonvolatile memory, retaining settings for the next time the unit is powered up. For easy integration on most professional fishing vessels, the SST-110 outputs standard NMEA 0183 water temperature data and works on both 12 and 24 VDC systems. Even with its large digital display, the SST-110 draws only 0.35 amps (0.55 amps with full backlighting).

Baltimore’s Inner Harbor and the rivers that flow into it are important sources of water to Chesapeake Bay, popular recreation sites and the targets of an ambitious clean-up plan. But the city has for some time lacked an environmental monitoring system for tracking water quality in the harbor continuously. That is about to change, thanks to a collaboration between the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). It will lead to the new installation of a suite of sensors that will provide the public and scientists with the first comprehensive, real time look at water quality in the harbor.Read More
A parasite that caused a massive fish kill in Montana’s Yellowstone River has been found in at least seven other rivers in the state, according to the Bozeman Daily Chronicle . Scientists with the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks department made the find. So far, the parasite has been confirmed in the upper and lower Madison, East Gallatin, Bighorn, Stillwater, and Boulder Rivers. It had already been confirmed in the Jefferson and Shields Rivers. The microscopic parasite causes proliferative kidney disease, one of the most serious diseases to impact whitefish and trout. The effect of the disease on Yellowstone’s fish populations is exacerbated by other stressors like near-record low flows, consistent high temperatures and the disturbance caused by recreational activities.Read More
It may have taken 20 years and $20 million to develop, but Lake Erie researchers working to fight harmful algal blooms (HABs) now have a new tool to safeguard drinking water: ESPniagara. The advanced sampler has been called a “lab in a can” for its ability to sample microcystins, the most common algal toxin these days, in almost real time. The big gadget’s name is a mashup between “ESP,” for environmental sample processor, and the name of Admiral Oliver Hazard Perry’s ship during the War of 1812. “We wanted to name it something that was significant to Lake Erie,” said Tim Davis, molecular biologist and lead HABs researcher at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Great Lakes Environmental Research Lab (NOAA GLERL) in Ann Arbor, Mich.Read More
