100th RoxAnn GD-A Seabed Classification System Shipped

The 100th RoxAnn GD-A seabed discrimination system, manufactured with the latest miniature digital technology, was recently shipped to Flatoy Electronics a/s, Sonavision’s exclusive distributor for the system in the Norwegian, Swedish and Danish fishing industries.

Alastair Murrie, Sonavision’s International Distribution Manager commented, "RoxAnn has been the leading seabed discrimination system for over 20 years. However, the new RoxAnn GD-A, has set new standards for the 21st century.

Not only can the RoxAnn GD-A interface with any echosounder from 24kHz to 210kHz and a wide range of plotting systems, including Sonavision’s own RoxMap, MaxSea, Microplot, Trax, Sodena and Olex, but it can be switched from one echosounder to another. This is possible due to digital technology and in addition, the echsounder’s range can be changed without affecting RoxAnn data."

He added: "We are delighted to have had such a long and successful partnership with Henning Flatoy, Flatoy Electronics a/s whose knowledge of the fishing industry in Scandanavia is second to none and we look forward to continuing to work closely with him in the future."

Henning Flatoy stated: "The RoxAnn GD-A is invaluable in helping a skipper identify quickly and accurately whether his vessel is towing over rock, gravel, sand, silt etc. and to build up personal colour coded charts. More and more skippers tell us that it’s the most important invention for the fishing industry since the echosounder!"
