Pacific Ocean Shelf Tracking (POST)

Independent

The Pacific Ocean Shelf Tracking (POST) Project was designed to develop and promote the application of acoustic tagging technology to study the life history of Pacific salmon. A major area of focus for POST involved the development of a permanent continental-scale telemetry system. POST’s array sits on the seabed of the continental shelf and upstream in several major rivers, and is used to monitor the movements of not only salmon, but many other types of marine animals along the shelf. Tracking data generated from the array can be applied to the development of fishery management policies aimed at the sustainable harvest of resources, and to the understanding and conservation of other marine and diadromous species.
