Remote sensing technique using underwater acoustics are one of the most cost-effective methods of resource detection and mapping, particularly in the coastal zone. We measured the acoustic backscatter using single beam echosounder from water column target and sea bottom. The increasing of fish size is followed by target strength value. For sea bottom, the highest acoustic backscattering was sand followed by silt and clay. This was caused by the acoustic impedance difference and also the presence of the organisms in sediment. By this study, classification and characterization of underwater target such as fish and seabed using acoustic technology was possible.
