The bottom of the ocean is every bit as complex as the topography of dry land. And, just like on land, different fish species associate with different benthic, or seafloor, structures. Bathymetry, or the mapping of the ocean floor, gives fishermen the tools to visualize these benthic structures. Through our bathymetric mapping program, fishermen are collaborating to do just that- and, to reduce bycatch and fish more efficiently while they're at it.
