Ohio DNR Researcher Matt Faust discusses acoustic telemetry on Lake Erie and GLATOS during a recent episode of the AquaKids TV show.
The robofish are coming! A new underwater gliding robot fish with acoustic telemetry receiver completed first round of field tests on in August. Development is a collaboration of MSU (X. Tan, C. Krueger) and USGS (D. Hondorp, C. Holbrook).
