About this book

Developed from a symposium held in February 2000, at which scientists working in all oceans of the planet presented research results from diverse marine species and habitats.

'This volume should be required reading for anyone considering electronic tag deployment. Overall, it generally presents a broad overview of deploying electronic monitoring devices on marine fishes. Even though some submissions are stronger than others, there are useful suggestions within all of them. This book is certainly a ready collection of references for researchers interested in the subject, whether the older acoustic telemetry or the newer electronic archival recorders.' The Quarterly Review of Biology, 78:4 (December 2003)
