Commercialization of the fishfinder, 1948.

A fishfinder was commercialized for the first time by Furuno Electric Co., Ltd. in 1948, which reformed the fishery industry in Japan and contributed remarkably to the development of protein resources. This fishfinder was realized by improving an echo sounder so that it could catch clearly the weak echo signals reflected from fish schools by enhancing the ability of its built-in amplifier.

Professor Shirakawa:

I have agreed to be the Advocate for this Milestone proposal. I have looked carefully at the proposal, and I now have to pick reviewers. These reviewers should have no conflict of interest with the Milestone or its supporters. Since I have very little knowledge of the technology involving fish-finding, if you have any suggestions for reviewers, I would be happy to consider them.

The only other thing is that it is required that: "All supporting materials must be in English, or accompanied by an English translation". Thus, references [4-9, 11] need to be accompanied by an English translation, or at least an abstract in English.

I look forward to working with you on finalizing the processing of this proposal.
