In order to improve the accuracy of hydroacoustics investigation and assessment of the scale of the algae field, under the control of laboratory experimental pools, acoustic detection and underwater actual measurement are adopted. The hydroacoustics parameters involved in the characteristic values of algae plant height, water depth and coverage of algae field were verified. The results show that when the carrier travel speed is 1.5m/s, the rising edge threshold and the submerged vegetation detection threshold are -40 dB and -75 dB, respectively, the algae acoustic detection results are the most accurate.
