Setting up a new set of acoustic telemetry equipment on the Island of ‘Curieuse’

Stuart Laing participated in setting up a new set of acoustic telemetry equipment on the Island of ‘Curieuse’. The equipment is a key data gathering tool of the project led by GVI for tracking juvenile lemon sharks around the island. The setup process involved rewiring the batteries and training field technicians to connect and download receiver data. Still to be tested is the range of the receiver – the distance over which it picks up signals from tags that will be ‘fixed’ onto the sharks, starting in October of this year.
