Details

StarFish 450F is an affordable, high-performance towed side scan sonar that produces spectacular images of the seabed. The compact, hydrodynamic, full body three-fin design improves stability of the sonar while being towed, helping to further improve the quality of images it produces.

Utilizing advanced digital CHIRP acoustic technology developed from the professional underwater survey industry, StarFish 450F can view targets at longer ranges without any loss in image quality. It competes with many larger commercial systems, yet the intuitive software makes it very easy to use.

Measuring less than 15 inches long, the StarFish 450F sonar is the smallest towed side scan sonar available. The system is independent of the boat, requiring no fixed installation and making it easy to transport and operate from any vessel. The topside controller connects to any Windows PC or laptop via USB connection for easy operation by a single person. Simply deploy the sonar by hand and tow from your boat to capture and record real-time images of the seafloor below.

What is the depth rating of the Starfish?
All of the Starfish Side Scan Sonars have a depth rating of 50 meters (164 feet)
What is the range of this sonar?
The Starfish 450F Side Scan Sonar has a maximum acoustic range of 100 meters (328 feet) on each side of the towfish/sonar head with at vertical beam angle of 60 degrees.
What is the max depth to get reasonable images returned? Will this generate decent imagery in the 250-300' depth range?
The StarFish 450F imaging is limited to 50 m (164 ft) depth below the sonar. As the sonar sits at about 5 m below the surface when towed, quality imagery is only available at depths shallower than 180 ft.

UNC Wilmington Uses Advanced Gear To Prepare Students For Oceanography Work

College professors know that preparing students to be good oceanographers takes a lot of hard work. Getting all the basics down, like the necessary math, chemistry and biology skills, among others, can be difficult on its own. But the real trick comes when all those skills are combined and used to approach actual work in the field. And when students finally get out of the classroom, there’s still more prep, like training them to use the advanced research tools that scientists use nowadays. Still, college oceanography programs today get the job done by working in applied learning components that have students sailing on research vessels or suiting up in scuba gear to get hands-on experience.

Data Buoys Study Turbid Water Environments in Lake Erie Basin

What started as a study into a relatively unexamined type of cyanobacteria has turned biologists from Bowling Green State University into an integral part of the effort to monitor and protect the drinking water in Sandusky, Ohio. Dr. George Bullerjahn, the Professor of Research Excellence at Bowling Green State University, has done considerable work in the study of beneficial cyanobacterial organisms in the eastern and central basins of Lake Erie. His current project is focused on the growth of the toxic cyanobacterium Planktothrix in Sandusky Bay. Over the course of his career Bullerjahn has collaborated with Dr. Steven Wilhelm from the University of Tennessee.

Bottom Composition Matters, Underwater Cameras Can Help

As a pro angler, I use my Lowrance electronics every single time I am on the water. They are great at locating fish and structure, but when combined with my FishSens SondeCAM HD Underwater Camera they can show everything. A camera is a great tool for someone who wants to better understand what they are seeing on their electronics and for me, it helps get a clear picture of one of the most important things in bass fishing: bottom composition. Hard Spots Hard bottoms are usually the best, and bass will relate to hard bottoms of different types depending on the region. My Lowrance StructureScan will show hard bottoms as bright, white areas on the screen where softer bottoms will be more grayish.
