Top Predators and Large Pelagic Animals
Tagging of Pacific Pelagics (TOPP)
TOPP is a project that uses electronic tagging technology to study migration patterns of large open-ocean animals and the oceanographic factors controlling these patterns. TOPP focuses on investigating the movements of the top predators in the Pacific, including sharks, dolphins and albatrosses.
|A special tag is attached to the dorsal fin of a salmon shark, which can relay information about the shark's movement to scientists via satellite.(Tagging of Pacific Pelagics - TOPP)|
