Combined acoustic/radio transmitters
The Lotek CART series of transmitters was introduced to minimize the impact on threatened or endangered fish species that traverse multiple environments where use of a single telemetry tracking technology (radio or acoustic) is sub-optimum. CART transmitters allow researchers to monitor fish in freshwater or saltwater, in areas characterized by shallow depths and turbid, high flow, as well as areas of greater depth. CART minimizes the impact on the species of interest by providing a single transmitting tag solution to studying animals in almost any environment. CART permits tracking anadromous species in river headwaters, the open ocean and everywhere between. CART offers real time sensor data (temperature, pressure/depth, bi-modal motion) transmission providing a deeper insight to animal behavior.
- Available as ID-only or ID plus real time sensor data transmission (temperature, pressure/depth, motion)
