A real-time video feed from the trawl has long been desired by fishermen and researchers alike. Cabling and slip-rings have been the issue. One of the primary design criteria of the Simrad FX80 catch monitoring system was to make it work on existing 3rd wire cables. We have achieved this goal using copper core coax cables. The use of existing copper core coax cables eases the cost and reduces the installation time.
