Current efforts to track marine animals primarily depend on rigid and heavy tags that require invasive attachment techniques. This project will build a lightweight, non-invasive tag.
Adopting skin-like sensors used to develop wearable technology such as activity trackers, the researchers will develop a small wearable multisensory tag capable of withstanding harsh ocean environments. This will allow safe, cutting-edge approaches to monitor and assess marine life and ecosystem health to support conservation and management.
