This report has been produced as a result of discussions in the Fisheries Acoustics Science and Technology (FAST)
Working Group of thelnternational Council of the Exploration of the Sea (ICES). Following discussions in the FAST Working Group, it was proposed that a study group on Target Strength Methodology be formed, which was recommended by the Fish Capture Committee.
