"This well written book clearly explains how echo sounders work, and how best to use them to consistently recognise the presence of fish in a variety of settings. Every aspect of the use of echo sounders for locating fish is discussed with plenty of illustrations showing real examples of what you might see on a screen with detailed notes on how to interpret the image."

About the author

John Adams comes from a seafaring family where all the men went to sea, serving on merchant ships, deepsea trawlers, or whalers. John lives in Perth, Western Australia, where he manages Fremantle Boat School.

There are many interesting stories told about John's family and their experiences at sea in the Atlantic Ocean and the waters surrounding the Antarctic. One uncle, Cecil Adams, was the skipper of a deep-sea trawler called the Bluff, which sank in the Atlantic. Because he was the sole survivor, his nickname became 'Bluffy'. The author has also survived a similar fate when he was the 2nd skipper on a trawler that capsized and sank gale force winds in Joseph Bonaparte Gulf, off the West Australian coast.
