Sonar observations of herring schools in the North Sea and along the Norwegian Coast reveal a rather constant swimming behaviour of individual schools in purse-seine capture situations. On the basis of this a method for position prediction of herring schools is developed. The method may give the opportunity for position prediction on true-motion sonars in real capture situations.
