This research project examines a number of key issues:
● Foster novel technological developments in bio-telemetry.
● Define data requirements and implement a central data system for aquatic animal telemetry with a common data policy, procedures and security rules in place. The database will serve as a host for a variety of electronic telemetry data types.
● Map ETN data standards to those of existing international bio-telemetry data systems.
● Improve the usefulness and inter-applicability of currently available technology by promoting the harmonization of acoustic tag coding schemes and promoting the compatibility between different acoustic telemetry equipment and brands.
