With support for standard narrowband and high performance broadband transducers, CHIRP technology, and 1kW/3kW transmit power for a 3,000m (10,000ft) effective range, the BSM-3 is Simrad Yachting's top echosounder for deep-water professional and sport fishers.

The Simrad BSM-3 works with a broad range of Airmar transducers, including its latest wide-angle CHIRP series. These transducers provide a distinct advantage over traditional narrower beam angles when looking for targets in the upper water column - making the new transducers a perfect fit for targeting pelagic species. With a wider coverage area fish targets are easier to see, appearing larger and more distinct than ever before. Wide beam transducers also search a larger section of the bottom, making it easier to find structures and track the seafloor.

Combine any Ultra Low/Low frequency CHIRP transducer with any Medium or High frequency transducer, to best mark the species you're targeting and the typical depths you're fishing in. The wide range of compatible transducers means you can customize the frequency ranges, output power, and mounting style for any sportfishing application.

With the ability to use up to an 8X scroll speed, BSM-3 presents larger fish targets than competing echosounders. Combined with the Simrad BSM-3's industry leading target separation and clarity, the BSM-3 offers a critical advantage when deep-water fishing.

The BSM-3 has a rugged die-cast aluminium housing, with IPX6-waterproof access cover for transducer wiring. Waterproof cable glands are included for use with bare-wire transducers, but new factory-fitted external connectors mean that with Airmar's latest range of transducers, installation is as simple as plugging in a cable - no need to open the access cover at all.

The BSM-3 is optimised for the Simrad HEROiC user interface, and is fully compatible with Simrad Yachting's range of multifunction displays*. With the HEROiC interface, you can immediately see how your adjustments will affect the sonar image. Find the best settings for your sportfishing needs, faster and easier than ever before.

* The BSM-3 is compatible with Simrad NSS, NSS evo2, NSE, NSO, and NSO evo2 series, with latest software updates installed. Some UI features unavailable on NSE and NSO Offshore models.


  • Dual Channel CHIRP with Ultra-Low, Low, Medium, or High Frequencies to suit your style of fishing and the species you target
  • Compatible with Wide Angle Transducers, with wider cone-angles for greater coverage of the water column

First Environmental Monitoring System For Baltimore’s Inner Harbor

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.

Parasite Behind Yellowstone River Fish Kill Found In Other Rivers

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.

ESPniagara Tracks Algal Toxins In Lake Erie, Protects Drinking Water

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.
