Ocean Acoustic Waveguide Remote Sensing (OAWRS) has recently been shown to be capable of instantaneously imaging and continuously monitoring fish populations over continental shelf-scale areas, covering thousands of km2. We show how OAWRS can be used in a variety of oceanic ecosystems to remotely assess populations and study the behavior of fish and other marine organisms, such as Antarctic krill, to help the study of marine ecology and the ecosystem-based approach to fisheries management.
