Estimating of Survival and Travel Times of Radio-tagged Fish in the Pacific Ocean Shelf Tracking (POST) Project

The Pacific Ocean Shelf Tracking ( project is part of the Census of Marine Life study. Radio-transmitters are surgically implanted into fish (e.g. salmon smolt) and are tracked during their migration by a series of listening lines along the ocean shelf. This project will estimate survival rates as a function of time since release and distance traveled for fish as they migrate past these listening lines.
