The Second International Symposium on Tagging and Tracking Marine Fish with Electronic Devices, was held 8-11 October 2007 at the Palacio de Miramar, in Donostia-San Sebastian, Spain. The meeting focused on the use of electronic devices to track movements and behaviours of marine fishes - present and future challenges and perspectives.
This symposium provided an opportunity for scientists working in the marine environment to review the state of the art of electronic tagging and tracking, to examine the type and quality of information currently obtained and to identify future research challenges and tag developments. The symposium will be an important contribution to solve scientific questions motivating CLIOTOP Working Group 2 on Physiology, Behaviour and Distribution.
This symposium appealed to:
- Biologists currently using or considering the use of electronic tagging and tracking devices,
- Assessment scientists and fishery managers interested in improving stock assessment estimates through the inclusion of behavior,
- Fishery managers interested in creating more effective regulations,
- Engineers interested in developing and marketing new devices,
- Physical oceanographers interested in the possibility of using large marine animals as autonomous environmental samplers.
