Tracking animals just got easier

A new suite of analysis tools for the animal acoustic-telemetry community

A new era has emerged where the movements and habitat selection of hundreds if not thousands of aquatic animals can be monitored autonomously and simultaneously. All around the Australian coastline, and throughout many of its estuaries and rivers, underwater acoustic receivers have been deployed to listen out for transmitters implanted into sharks, rays, fishes, crustaceans, crocodiles, turtles, and even jellyfish. It works like this; each group tags their own study species and deploys their own receivers, but because any receiver can detect and decode any transmitter, by sharing the data each research group can increase their study area up to the continental scale.
