Crab fishermen to test ropeless fishing
Commercial lobster and crab fisheries in North East Canada have begun Pilot programs in order to gauge the effectiveness of Desert Star's, Acoustic Release technology.
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.
