MAP Acoustic Transmitters for Fish
Available as ID-only (this page) or ID plus sensors

These systems permit the unique identification of over 80,000 individual
animals. Both ID-only and ID plus sensors (temperature, pressure/depth or motion) can be simultaneously monitored and recorded. Unique CDMA coding permits simultaneous detection of hundreds of co-located
transmitters at high repetition rates (to 40 transmissions per minute).

This page contains specifications for the non-sensor models of the MAP Series acoustic tags.

Specifications for the sensor models of the MAP Series can be found here.

*(replaces MA-Series)

  • Over 80,000 unique IDís.
  • Allows simultaneous detection/decoding hundreds of co-located transmitters.
  • Rapid (up to 1.5 sec) transmission period.
  • On/off activation by magnet removal.
  • Sensor option available (temperature, pressure, motion).
  • ID-only and ID plus sensor transmitters can be detected/recorded simultaneously.

Examples of real-time and/or datalogging applications for which MAP-Series coded transmitters are ideally suited include:

  • Species interaction
  • Migration / passage studies
  • Fine scale 2D and 3D habitat utilization
  • Environmental assessment
  • Aquaculture research including in-cage monitoring
  • Behavior relative to hydro dam operations
  • High speed manual tracking or 2D/3D positioning systems
