What does the migration behavior of Tanner Crab in the Bering Sea, Chinook Salmon and White Sturgeon in the Columbia River, Pallid Sturgeon in the Missouri River and Striped Bass from the Hudson River to the Gulf of Mexico have in common?
Over the past two decades, MAP acoustic telemetry systems have been assisting biologists and fisheries managers involved in this research, answering important questions regarding these fish behaviors.
- Fish passage/guidance efficiency studies
- Adult salmon fallback
- Prespawn mortality
- Fish behavior, congregation, responses to anthropogenic disturbance
- Habitat use and species interactions
- Migration behavior and timing
- Continuous 2D and 3D (2D + depth tags) positioning
From monitoring reef fish behaviors in the Indian Ocean and around oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico, to assessing the impacts of dams on fish migration in the Amazon River, researchers with leading Federal Agencies and Institutions world-wide have selected MAP acoustic systems to assist in elucidating these behaviors.
The MAP WHS 3250 now affords all researchers with a fish research and management mandate, even those working under tight budget constraints, an efficient and affordable acoustic system solution. Call us to discover more about how MAP Acoustic systems can provide a solution for your project.
