Acoustic telemetry

Data Representation of Acoustic Telemetry

Passive acoustic telemetry is a commonly used method of investigating marine fish behavior. My work examines the interaction between behavior and sampling to allow researchers using passive acoustics as a tool to ask more intricate and sophisticated ecological questions.

Habitat Use by Sixgill Sharks

Sixgill Sharks are a deep water shark with a worldwide species distribution. In Puget Sound their presence is known, but the particular variables they are responding to is less understood. We have developed a method of creating a habitat suitability model for this species by combining acoustic telemetry data with the Pacific Northwest Laboratories Salish Sea model.
