This report describes the acoustic and other complementary data gathered during an experiment carried from July 26th to July 28th in the water tank of the IPMA-EPPO (Estação Piloto de Piscicultura de Olhão ), Olhão, in the framework of the SEAOX project (PTDC/EEIPRO/2598/2014). The tank bottom is covered by seagrasses, particularly Zostera marina. The objective of the experiment was to gather a preliminary data set for the development of the acquisition systems, data processing methods and models. To this end several acoustics transmission at close range (source-receiver distance approx. 1 m) and backscatter measurements were carried during 2 daily cycles. This report presents the experimental setup, the acoustic and complementary environmental data acquired during the experiment, and discusses preliminary results.
