Media reviews

'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)
