We recently developed small satellite-linked telemetry tags that are anchored to the dorsal fin with small attachment darts. These tags have been remotely-deployed onto the dorsal fins of smalland medium-sized cetaceans, opening up the potential to monitor the movements of numerous species not previously accessible because they were too large or difficult to capture safely, but too small for tags that implant deeply within the body. Our main goal is to improve upon our existing tagging… CONTINUE READING
