iTAG’s “Orphan” Detection Program

February 01, 2017

The Integrated Tracking of Aquatic Animals in the Gulf of Mexico Network (iTAG-n) was formed in 2014 by a group of marine scientists working in the Gulf of Mexico. With the primary goals of understanding fish movements, stock resilience, and management applications, the group has now expanded to over 60 members. The iTAG Receiver Map shows detection data from over 2,000 animals detected by over 1,000 receivers. The iTAG Receiver Map provides a great way to track “orphan” detections, or detections from animals that are not the target species, along the Gulf of Mexico.
