The little SeaTag that could
Years ago a SeaTag attached to a lobster came loose and was lost off the waters of Nova Scotia Canada. After nearly 4,500 miles and three years, a beach comer in Great Britain happened upon that same tag with new data and a story exemplifying the durability and re-use potential of SeaTags.
First ARC-2XD Order
Marine mammal entanglements have threatened species to the brink of extinction, the ARC-2XD extends the technology from the ARC-1XD into a smaller more cost-effective design. With this technology, fishers around the world now have the means to stop entanglements while protecting their business through ghost fishing mitigation, theft protection and more
Cal-Neva AFS Chapter Meeting
Marco Flag and Jacob Wolf give a talk about the practicality and current uses of Pop-up Satellite Tags (PSAT) in freshwater systems. Referencing work completed this and last year, Marco details the questions which can be answered by PSAT's and the incorporation of such systems.
From whales to penguins
Our SeaTag line incorporates a compact, low-drag and especially low-cost PSAT for various tagging studies. From whales, sharks, deep-sea tuna, penguins, sea-turtles, lobster and other sea life, our tags offer specialized functions for mortality studies, migrations tracks, ocean current analysis and more.
ARC-1XD and ARC-2
Acoustic releases represent the end of whale entanglements, and a bright future for species like the Northern Right Whale. Acoustic releases also support large underwater inventory retrieval and a host of benefits for POT fishermen.
microMARS and SonarPoint
Passive under-water acoustic recording offers scientists new insights into the marine world. With a modular design, easy-to-use yet effective functions like localization in array systems, our recorders ofer a low-cost yet highly functional recording system. Available in many deployment styles, arrays also offer use in the energy sector, and ocean defense applications.
