Marine Wildlife Tracking
Sirtrack and partners offer a range of telemetry products suitable for tracking both freshwater and marine wildlife. Our diverse suite of technology (Acoustic, VHF, Argos, Fastloc, Archival and Light Geo-location) has been used to successfully monitor species from the riverine environment to the deep ocean. From salmon smolts to large pelagic fish, frogs to turtles, crocodiles, sharks, seals, penguins and cetaceans.
The Argos system is a global satellite location service delivering the transmitter's position and sensor data to the user's desktop.
Fastloc GPS stores a compressed snapshot of GPS data for relay via Argos or for download from a recovered logger.
Sirtrack transmitters offer the perfect balance between high power and long life combined with ease of use and exceptional value for money.
Acoustic telemetry utilizes sound waves to track fish and wildlife.
It is useful in situations where radio telemetry is not practical or appropriate (e.g., in deep or highly conductive water, i.e., salt water).
Archival tags are capable of measuring and storing data on light levels. They then use that data to calculate the subject’s latitude and longitude using a process known as light-based geolocation.
We offer 2 types of archival tags: Temperature Depth Recorders and Light Geo-Location tags.
Combined Acoustic/Radio Transmitters provide the means to track animals throughout a variety of applications or environments that may not be compatible with a single technology.
