450H Hull mount system includes hull mount towfish with cable, mounting bracket, topside controller box, AC adapter & StarFish Scanline software.
StarFish 450H is an affordable, high-performance hull-mounted side scan sonar that produces spectacular images of the seabed. The compact, slim-line sonar design, combined with a flexible mounting bracket, helps ensure correct positioning and high quality imagery on any vessel.
Utilizing advanced digital CHIRP acoustic technology developed from the professional underwater survey industry, StarFish 450H 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.
The StarFish 450 Series is designed to be 'Plug and Play', connecting to any Windows PC or laptop via USB connection. Simple, one-time installation to the boat's PC allows the user to capture real-time digital images of the seabed quickly and easily. Since the 450H sonar is fixed to the boat, it's accessible all the time, allowing the user to monitor the seabed for interesting targets during any journey. With hull-mounted systems, there is no need to worry about snagging a towing cable when surveying in shallow water or high traffic areas.

When we consider the glut of plastic rapidly accumulating all over the world , it's easy to see the problem of pollution and disposal of substances that don't biodegrade. However, it's not always as apparent to us that plastic pollution also means a growing number of toxic chemicals in the environment, many of which can be harmful to ecosystems.
Plastic polymers and the products made from them are wildly diverse as to chemical properties, composition, and range of potential applications, although most plastics are made from petrochemicals. Throughout the very long lifespan of any given plastic product, the material may release various hazardous substances .Read More
Ocean acidification is a simple process that has complex effects. Increasingly acidic ocean waters create a cascading series of changes and problems for marine life, as each response to the changing conditions prompts other crises. Recent research from the University of Adelaide reveals a novel problem: baby fish will have more trouble finding and reaching shelter in the acidified oceans of our shared future, placing populations of various fish at risk.
Despite how they may seem to humans, oceans are not silent worlds. They are filled with all sorts of noise, from fish sounds and whale vocalizations to the sounds produced by different kinds of habitats.Read More
What does it take for a lake to go from being the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) poster child for cyanobacteria to genuinely being in recovery and improving year by year? It takes a concerted community effort, best water quality management practices, and patience. At least, that's what it's taken for those working to improve the water quality of Grand Lake St. Marys—and recent research proves that all of the effort and patience is paying off.
Stephen Jacquemin , associate professor of biology and research coordinator at the Wright State University Lake Campus, has been spearheading research efforts on the lake for several years, and those efforts go back more than a decade.Read More
