Ultrasonic Telemetry to Track Estuarine Crustaceans

Presentation Type

Poster

Abstract

Ultrasonic telemetry is a method using sound to relocate tagged underwater animals that yields high-resolution spatiotemporal data on aquatic animals in their natural habitats. This method has proven to be highly effective at improving quantification of activity patterns, diel movements, migrations, habitat utilization, and home ranges of individuals and populations over traditional techniques such as baited trapping. However, this technology has not been widely applied because of its high cost. Our group has developed emitter and receiver prototypes that cost 20 times less than currently available technology. Our design includes a touchscreen user interface that will improve the relocation accuracy and efficiency of current technology while being more user-friendly than analog microphones currently used to relocate tagged animals.
