Description

The Animal Tracking Facility of Australia’s Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS) has been operating for over a decade. Formerly known as the Australian Animal Tracking and Monitoring System (AATAMS), it focuses on collecting long-term data on movements of marine animals within Australian coastal and oceanic waters to help the management of Australia’s marine resources. One of the major objectives of the Facility is to maintain a national acoustic receiver network and a centralised database for the Australian research community, thereby facilitating large-scale, collaborative acoustic telemetry research.
On the occasion of the 4th International Fish Telemetry Conference, IMOS ATF will be hosting its 7th annual workshop on the Saturday 17th June. The full-day workshop sponsored by Vemco will review the state of the national acoustic telemetry infrastructure and research progress. It will include discussions with Vemco representatives about acoustic study design, range testing, new Vemco emerging technologies, the Facility’s recent progress and future directions, and will create a platform for community members to present an overview of their local through to national research projects. The IMOS ATF team will be presenting some of their latest acoustic mooring designs and will allow time for users needing advice on technical matters or help entering their data into the database.
