Abstract

Acoustic telemetry technology has been used for monitoring fish in artificial reefs since twenty years. In this study, acoustic positioning system design was developed for telemetry studies in artificial reefs. The performance and effective detection distance of acoustic positioning system were also determined. In this research was carried out between July and September of 2013 in Edremit Bay artificial reefs area, Vemco of acoustic positioning system (VPS; Vemco Positioning System) was used. 6 acoustic receivers (VR2W), 5 synchronization transmitters (Synctag; V13-1L) and 1 control transmitter (Reftag; V13T-1L) were deployed as a pentagonal design. While 89.9% of the signals were captured by at least one receiver, 62.1% of the signals were determined by at least one receiver in a range of 600 m. This study as being the first for Turkey is expected to contribute scientific literature for artificial reef studies.

Abstract

Akustik telemetri teknolojisinin yapay resif alanlarındaki canlıların izlenmesinde kullanımına son yirmi yılda rastlanmaktadır. Bu çalışmada yapay resif alanlarında yapılacak telemetri çalışmaları için akustik konumlandırma sistemi tasarımı geliştirilmiş ve etkili algılama mesafesi (menzil) ve performansı belirlenmiştir. Edremit Körfezi yapay resif alanında Temmuz-Eylül 2013 tarihleri arasında yürütülen araştırmada, Vemco firmasına ait akustik konumlandırma sistemi (VPS; Vemco Positioning System) kullanılmıştır. Beşgen şeklindeki VPS tasarımı, 6 adet akustik alıcı (VR2W), 5 adet senkronizasyon vericisi (Synctag; V13-1L) ve 1 adet kontrol vericisinden (Reftag; V13T-1L) meydana gelmiştir. Çalışmada senkronizasyon vericilerden gelen sinyallerin %89,9’u üç ya da daha fazla alıcı tarafından tespit edilmiş, vericilerden gelen sinyallerin %62,1’i 600 m bir alanda en az bir alıcı tarafından belirlenebilmiştir. Ülkemiz için bir ilk olma özelliği taşıyan bu çalışmanın, yapay resif alanlarında yapılacak bilimsel çalışmalar için gerekli literatür katkısını sağlaması beklenmektedir.
