New Method Developed For Estimating Fish Movements Underwater
2013-08-23 11:24:41

University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa How do you track a fish? There’s no “Google Maps” for finding fish. The radio signals that are the backbone of traditional GPS cannot pass through seawater. But sound travels remarkably well, so scientists often use acoustic telemetry to estimate an individual fish’s location. That means attaching an acoustic transmitter to a fish and then using a network of stationary underwater listening stations to monitor for the short clicking sounds that...
