Talk by senior fisheries scientist, Tracey Steig given at the 2012 American Fisheries Society (AFS) Annual Meeting in Minneapolis, MN. Acoustic telemetry data acquired and compiled from Fish Fest! 2011.
In September 2011, HTI and the AFS Student Subchapter co-hosted Fish Fest! at the Seattle Aquarium in conjunction with the American Fisheries Society (AFS) Annual Conference in 2011. In addition to breaking attendance records, HTI acoustically tagged and 3D tracked coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch), canary rockfish (Sebastes pinniger) and yellowtail rockfish (S. flavidus) with the Seattle Aquarium team. Together, they tracked fish behavior in real-time as they traveled throughout the mammoth 120,000 gallon Window on Washington Waters (WOWW) tank.
