FURUNO ELECTRIC CO., LTD. (headquartered in Nishinomiya, Japan), introduces its brand new high-performance FISH SPECIES AND BIOMASS SOUNDER, Model FSS-3BB that comes with the IDENTI-FISH™ function, a technology newly patented by Furuno, which allows you to identify/distinguish swim bladder and swim bladder-less fish. It also incorporates a built-in 3 kW dual-channel TruEcho CHIRP™ fish finder, which provides the highest level of detail.
FISH SPECIES AND BIOMASS SOUNDER Model FSS-3BB
It is based on a revolutionary analysis method combining high and low frequency echoes that the IDENTI-FISH™ function is capable of highlighting the difference between the two main types of fish, swim bladder and swim bladder-less fish.
This function consists of an echo display and a histogram mode respectively called the IDENTI-FISH™ echo display and the IDENTI-FISH™ histogram. Thanks to 2 preset model curves available with the IDENTI-FISH™ histogram mode, it is possible to determine the species of fish with a very high degree of probability by comparing the curve of the detected object with those of the model data.

There are two reference models: Atlantic mackerel (Swim bladder-less fish) and herring (Swim bladder fish) which have divergent echo curves due to their major anatomical difference.
