Deepwater Sidescan Sonar and Camera Surveys for Derelict Fishing Nets and Rockfish Habitat

Abstract
This study tested the feasibility of employing side scan sonar surveys to locate derelict nets in deepwater (105 – 350 ft) rockfish habitat, verify the findings with camera surveys, and assess potential threats
to the rockfish populations.
