Tracking Fish Behaviour

Using hydro-acoustic monitoring to track fish behaviour in IISD-ELA lakes.

IISD-ELA is pursuing an expanded program of hydro-acoustic monitoring of fish behaviour in its lakes.  This includes continued tracking of fish in experimental lakes 626, 373, and 375 and testing of new transmitters in Lake 658 that simultaneously monitor the position, temperature, and dissolved oxygen concentration experienced by tagged fish.

This work is carried out in partnership with Fisheries and Oceans Canada and Lakehead University.
