Catch Sensor


Cost: Contact Manufacturer

The Catch Sensor measures the fill rate of the trawl and indicates when the cod end is full so the catch can be hauled in, thus eliminating problems associated with overfilling the trawl, to dramatically increase fishing efficiency. Up to four of Catch Sensors can be used on the cod end. Compatible with WESMAR and Furuno/Imagenex trawl sonars; consult Marport for details. Features: - The Marport Catch Sensor transmits an "ON" message and simultaneously measures and transmits changes in the net’s mesh size to the operator. As the net expands due to the accumulation of fish, the sensor transmits a control signal to the bridge display - Continually monitors the optimum catch volume in relation to the net's capacity - Lithium-Ion battery
