Electronic telemetry tags: development of behaviour sensors for fish - MF0155

Summary Objective:
Develop and test sensors that can monitor physical movements, and can then be incorporated into current acoustic transmitting and electronic data storage tags (DSTs) for deploying on free ranging marine fish.

Key Customer Purpose:
Provide information about the feeding behaviour of marine fish in relation to the environment at the appropriate spatial and temporal scales that can be used to parametise multi-species and ecosystem models, and to identify the location and spawning that is necessary for understanding stock identity and dynamics.
