Green Sturgeon Archival Tag Data

Steve Lindley of the SWFSC Fisheries Ecology Division received processed archival data from Microwave Telemetry for 8 pop-off archival tags deployed on green sturgeon in 2004-2005. Estimated tracks are broadly consistent with what is being learned from acoustic tags, with one fish perhaps venturing into the South California Bight. Tags were operational for up to 15 months (a record, apparently), and only one of 9 failed to report. (November 6, 2006)
