In recent years, conservation and management of fish resources has experienced serious problems worldwide. Hydroacoustic surveys can provide superior information for the assessment of fisheries stocks, however there are some limitations and prerequisites that require careful attention. The forthcoming workshop will address relevant topics and aims to popularize acoustic fish resource surveys.
