Array recovery and redeployment

After 5.5 years of continuous operation, Kintama has recovered and redeployed the acoustic receiver arrays in the Discovery Islands and Johnstone Strait areas of British Columbia. The previous arrays were designed to detect both 180 and 69 kHz acoustic tags. The redeployed arrays are located in nearly the same locations as before but optimize detection of the more powerful 69 kHz acoustic tags used in current studies. The equipment for these arrays is owned by the Ocean Tracking Network and the service events were funded by grants to Dr. Scott Hinch at the University of British Columbia from the B.C. Salmon Restoration and Innovation Fund and the Pacific Salmon Commission.
