Over the past few years, pop-up satellite archival tags (PSATs) have been used to investigate the behavior, movements, thermal biology, and postrelease mortality of a wide range of large, highly migratory species including bluefin tuna (Block et al., 2001), swordfish (Sedberry and Loefer, 2001), blue marlin (Graves et al., 2002), striped marlin (Domeier and Dewar, 2003), and white sharks (Boustany et al., 2002). PSAT tag technology has improved rapidly, and current tag models are capable of… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Use of pop-up satellite archival tag technology to study postrelease survival of and habitat use by estuarine and coastal fishes: an application to striped bass (Morone saxatilis)
TLDR
All eight striped bass whose tags transmitted data survived for 30 days after release, including two fish that were hooked deeply with J hooks, allowing retrieval of all archived data. Expand
Habitat use and movement patterns of bull sharks Carcharhinus leucas determined using pop-up satellite archival tags.
TLDR
While some individuals made large-scale movements over open ocean areas, the results emphasize the importance of the coastal zone for this species as potential essential habitat, particularly in areas of high freshwater inflow. Expand
Shark Predation on Migrating Adult American Eels (Anguilla rostrata) in the Gulf of St. Lawrence
TLDR
Evidence suggesting that predation of silver-stage American eels by porbeagle sharks may represent a significant source of mortality inside the Gulf of St. Lawrence is discussed and the possibility that eels may represents a reliable, predictable food resource for por beagle sharks is raised. Expand
Habitat utilization and vertical movements of white marlin (Tetrapturus albidus) released from commercial and recreational fishing gears in the western North Atlantic Ocean: inferences from short duration pop-up archival satellite tags
Researchers have applied numerous techniques to improve billfish stock assessments, including habitatbased models that incorporate behavioral and oceanographic parameters to standardize historicalExpand
Post-release survival, movement, and habitat use of school shark Galeorhinus galeus in the Great Australian Bight, southern Australia
Abstract Bycatch of marine mammals in the gillnet sector of the Southern and Eastern Scalefish and Shark Fishery in the Great Australian Bight prompted managers to assess the use of demersalExpand
Evidence of a predation event on a tagged Mediterranean spearfish (Tetrapturus belone; Pisces, Istiophoridae), inferred from pop-up satellite tagging data
TLDR
Analysis of collected data seems to indicate that the predator in the Strait of Messina may be an ectothermic shark, most likely the bluntnose sixgill shark (Hexanchus griseus). Expand
An Estimate of Postrelease Mortality of School‐Size Bluefin Tuna in the U.S. Recreational Troll Fishery
TLDR
The power of this analysis is limited by the relatively small sample size, but the observed postrelease mortality of school-size Bluefin Tuna caught in the recreational troll fishery indicated that all 19 fish survived for the tagging period. Expand
Performance of pop-up satellite archival tags
Pop-up satellite archival tags (PSATs) are used to chronicle or 'archive' the habitat preferences, horizontal and vertical movements, fishery interaction, and post-release mortality rates of aExpand
Predation of pop-up satellite archival tagged albacore (Thunnus alalunga)
TLDR
Recorded stomach temperatures and differences between stomach and ambient water temperatures were consistent with shortfin mako and porbeagle sharks, and vertical behavior in the form of diel migrations, deep dives and extensive periods spent close to the surface during day and night time was again consistent with Lamnid sharks. Expand
Habitat use and diel vertical migration of bigeye thresher shark: Overlap with pelagic longline fishing gear.
TLDR
The results presented herein can be used as inputs for Ecological Risk Assessments for bigeye threshers captured in oceanic tuna fisheries, and serve as a basis for efficient management and conservation of this vulnerable shark species. Expand

Movements and Swimming Behavior of Three Species of Sharks in La Jolla Canyon, California
We tracked six individuals of three shark species, the shortfin mako, Isurus oxyrinchus, great white, Carcharodon carcharias, and blue, Prionace glauca, near the submarine canyon off La Jolla,Expand
Movements of blue sharks (Prionace glauca) in depth and course
TLDR
Acoustic telemetry was used to follow 22 blue sharks,Prionace glauca (Linnaeus), over the continental shelf and slope in the region between George's Bank and Cape Hatteras between 1979 and 1986, finding that they may orient to the earth's magnetic field, or to the ocean's electric fields, allowing them to swim on a constant heading in the absence of celestial cues.
