Satellite Tagging Observation Reports
1/16/18 - Organizations collaborating in the satellite tagging research program:
Atlantic Marine Conservation Society
Marine Mammals of Maine
Northeast Fisheries Science Center.
And Pacific Marine Mammal Center
Working in the field is what we do best. Atlantic Marine Conservation Society biologists joined NOAA Fisheries Service Northeast Science Center, Marine Mammals of Maine, Pacific Marine Mammal Center, Tufts University researchers, and WhaleNet-WheelockCollege STEM Education Resource to tag and conduct health assessments of gray seals on Muskeget Island in Massachusetts.
The information gained from this project will help us to gain a better understanding of the health of this population, species behavior and movements, dive patterns, and so much more. This data will also help organizations in this region to respond to these animals in the future.
