Abstract: The swimming angle of larval Japanese anchovy (Engraulis japonicus) was measured in a tank, and target strength (TS) was calculated using a theoretical scattering model. The mean swimming angle was 12.8° (s.d. = ± 22.1). Increased speeds of flow led to increased mean swimming angles. The mean swimming angle at flow of 5 cm s^[-1] was higher than those at other speeds. TS values were estimated using a distorted-wave Born approximation model for two cases. Average values were 1-3 cm s^[-1] (Case 1: 11.5° ± 22.1) and 5 cm s^[-1] (Case 2: 16.6° ± 21.7) for cases 1 and 2, respectively. For case 1, TS ranged from -92.0 to -74.7 dB with a mean of -79.4 dB at 120 kHz. For case 2, TS ranged from -92.2 to -75.2 dB with a mean of -79.9 dB. The mean TS in case 2 was lower than that in case 1, with the maximum difference being 1.0 dB at 120 kHz [standard length 22.0 mm]. However, there were no significant differences between the regression lines of cases 1 and 2. Thus, changes in flow speed altered the swimming angle of larval Japanese anchovy, but had little influence on TS.
カタクチイワシシラスのような無鰾魚を対象に音響計測を実施する場合, わずかな姿勢角変化がターゲットストレングスに大きく影響する. 本研究では, 頭部を上向きにした状態で遊泳する傾向が強いこと(平均12.8°, 標準偏差±22.1), 流速が上昇するとこの傾向が強くなることを明らかにした. また, 分散分析により姿勢角結果を2ケースに分けTSを平均化したが, 両者にほとんど差はみられなかった. したがって, 物理環境により遊泳姿勢にわずかな違いが生じても, 標準偏差が高い場合は平均化TSへの影響は小さいと考えられた.
