Integrating telemetry research for better ecosystem management

Description

Tagging Atlantic cod in the Gilbert Bay Marine Protected Area.

Telemetry—the technology used for measuring data from a distance—is used globally to better understand and manage ocean resources, and provides valuable information that could not easily be measured using traditional techniques. While many researchers collect telemetry data, their work is done independently, with the result that similar information is collected, analyzed, and stored separately. This project aims to reduce cost, improve efficiency, and support collaborations and ecosystem-based management by developing a common platform for the collection and storage of data related to fish ecology, fisheries management, oceanography, and conservation of resources.
