Electronic Marine Animal Tagging: New Frontier in Ocean Science

Gregory Stone Jerry Schubel Heather Tausig
First Paragraph

On May 14 and 15, 1998, a forum was held as part of the Aquatic Forum Series at the New England Aquarium to assess the current status of electronic marine animal telemetry, tags and the next steps to advance and apply this technology to better understand the patterns of life in the oceans. The forum was sponsored by the New England Aquarium, Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, and Marine Technology Society (MTS). To coincide with this meeting, the Marine Technology Society published a special issue of the Marine Technology Society Journal on marine animal telemetry, tagging (Stone and Kraus, 1998), which was distributed to participants and provided a basis for discussion.
