The SondeCAM mini is a compact downward-facing fishing camera for viewing live underwater video directly from a supported fishfinder or display with video inputs.
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.

Do the FishSens underwater cameras work with Lowrance Gen 2 non touch models?
The non-touch Gen 2 models do not support an external video input. As a result, they are not compatible with the FishSens underwater cameras.
Can a SondeCAM be connected to a standard TV display?
Yes, the SondCAM family can be connected to any video display with an available RCA or BNC port.
Do the SondeCAM mini and the SondeCAM use the same power adapter?
Yes, the adapters are the same for the Mini SondeCAM and the SondeCAM.
What is the difference between the SondeCAM mini and the SondeCAM?
The SondeCAM mini features a slightly smaller body and is a downward facing camera, while the SondeCAM is a side-facing camera.
Does the SondeCAM mini record?
The SondeCAM mini does not have recording capabilities.
Surveying waterways for defining habitats and ranges may soon be much quicker and easier thanks to the applied use of environmental DNA (eDNA). Traditional studies have relied upon the slow, difficult, and somewhat haphazard process of catching fauna in the field using any number of techniques. This is even more difficult than usual when the target of the study is an endangered animal.
A new company NatureMetrics , which spun-out from the University of East Anglia (UEA) , is taking on this challenge with its eDNA tech.
“We were founded to work on developing high-throughput ways of measuring biodiversity, and environmental DNA is one element of that,” Dr. Kat Bruce , the director of NatureMetrics, remarks to EM.Read More
“I remember how I first became fascinated with eels,” says Chris Bowser, Education Coordinator for the Hudson River National Estuarine Research Reserve (HRNERR) and Hudson River Estuary Program (HREP) of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, in partnership with Cornell University’s NYS Water Resource Institute . “I was doing a talk on a ship called the Clearwater. There was a trawl net catch on the deck and I picked up one of the things in the catch. It was a piece of trash, a plastic toy truck with barnacles growing on it. I was speaking to the audience and they seemed really riveted! I was thinking, ‘I must be giving a really good talk.Read More
In 2014, the Department of Ecology (DOE) in the State of Washington began to work on water quality standards related to wineries in the Yakima Valley and the rest of the state. The specific concern is the handling of wastewater from winemaking; this kind of wastewater is toxic.
Water into wine, and waste
Winery wastewater is high in sugar and filled with suspended solids such as grape plant matter and juice. Microbes can digest those solids, but only if there's enough oxygen in the water. In wastewater from winemaking, there isn't enough oxygen for those microbes—biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) far exceeds supply.
Consider this. To use the wastewater for irrigation , BOD must be below 50 .Read More
