Integrating Natural and Artificial Tags to Reconstruct
Fish Migrations and Ontogenetic Niche Shifts
MyTag gathers an interdisciplinary team to develop and integrate the use of natural and artificial markers to study fish migrations. By using state of the art techniques, this project aims to resolve ontogenic movements at fine spatial and temporal scales, namely reproductive migrations, estuarine colonization and nursery habitat use.
The innovative aspect of this project is the integration of both natural and artificial tags, and the development and application of new technological solutions for tracking marine fish populations – using autonomous surface vehicles (ASVs) – aiming at deeper insights into fish movements.
The project comprises the following main activities:
