This feasibility assessment considers passive acoustic monitoring systems, using the echolocation and communication clicks of the Hector’s dolphins to estimate their location within the water column, and therefore the proximity to demersal trawl fishing equipment. The study examines different array and localisation tracking concepts, possible detection ranges, and installation locations for hydrophones using theoretical simulations.
