“Follow that fish! Radio telemetry revealing secrets of aquatic species,” by Karl Blankenship, Bay Journal, 5/4/15, describes some of the efforts by the Atlantic Cooperative Telemetry Network to use radio-telemetry devices to monitor movements of Atlantic Sturgeon, Striped Bass, and dozens of other species in the Chesapeake Bay and along the Atlantic coast. In radio telemetry, small electronic transmitters implanted into captured fish send out high-frequency signals to receivers monitored by some 100 scientists and fishery managers in the network. The location signals help researchers learn about migration patterns, spawning areas, and other habitat issues.
