Acoustic and radio telemetry

Radio and acoustic tracking of fish (or any animal) allows the movement and activity of animals to be recorded over the life of the transmitter (battery size dependent).

Detection distance tend to be site specific but can be several km. Once a fish is tagged, it can be located and identified by a hand-held tracker or it can be automatically recorded by a static logging device. Movement in 2D and even 3D space is possible with an array of receivers.
