TRACKING salmon “easier, quicker, safer” with new injectable device; Beeping tag gathers data to help make dams more fish-friendly

Fish no longer need to go under the knife to help researchers understand exactly how they swim through hydroelectric dams, thanks to a new injectable tracking device described in the journal Scientific Reports. The new injectable acoustic fish tag allows researchers to safely and quickly insert the small device into young fish with a syringe similar to those used to treat humans. Injecting the tag, instead of surgically inserting it as earlier versions required, is less invasive and enables fish to heal faster, which can also provide more reliable information about fish behavior. “Our new tag essentially allows fish to undergo a quick outpatient procedure,” said Zhiqun “Daniel” Deng, a scientist at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. “Tags have been used to track and evaluate fish movement for decades, but this is the first acoustic transmitter that can be inserted with a simple needle injection.” NB Ed: The realm of research (or other) applications for this new type of tracking device will likely broaden in the realm of salmonid (or other) science on a large scale … Continue reading TRACKING salmon “easier, quicker, safer” with new injectable device; Beeping tag gathers data to help make dams more fish-friendly
