Orange roughy consist of approximately 18% lipids by weight, mostly as wax esters, and the lipids must be taken into account when modeling target strength. A deformed cylinder model incorporating the effect of temperature and pressure on sound speed through wax ester was used to scale experimental measurements of target strength to the temperatures and pressures where orange roughy live (approximately 6 degrees C, depths approximately 800-1300 m). The effect of decreasing temperature and… CONTINUE READING
