The results of radar detection of fish shoals are shown. Full-scale testing was carried out in the Barents, the Norwegian and the Northern Seas with the multipurpose radar system MARS from the altitudes of 7000 m (predetection of the anticipated shoal concentration area) and of 100ё200 m (shoal detection in the target area). The fish shoals are shown to be assuredly detected (with the signal contrast of 16ё18.5 dB) in the X-band waves. The observation agrees well with the results shown by expert observers.
