In this article, to achieve reliable results by deep learning methods, we collected the raw acoustic signals received by the hydrophones in the relevant database with the label of each class, and we performed the necessary pre-processing on them so that they become a stationary signal and finally provided them to the spectrogram system. Next, by using short-term frequency transformation (STFT), the spectrogram of high resonance components is obtained and used as the input of the modified MobileNet classifier for model training and evaluation. The simulation results with the Python program indicate that the suggested technique can reach a classification accuracy of 97.37% and a validation loss of less than 3%.  Â
