Abstract
DEVELOPMENT OF A DATA-TAKING AND DATA-RECORDING (ARCHIVAL) FISH TAG TO BE ATTACHED TO OR IMPLANTED IN A LARGE MARINE ANIMAL SUCH AS A TUNA. WHEN RECOVERED IN THE FISHERY, THE TAG WOULD BE READ OUT, MAKING AVAILABLE A RECORD OF ENVIRON MENTAL VARIABLES. RECORDS OF TEMPERATURE, PRESSURE, AND AMBIENT LIGHT WOULD ALLOW INFERENCE OF THE ANIMALS 3-DIMENSIONAL TRACK OF DEPTH (FROM PRESSURE), LATITUDE ( (FROM TEMPERATURE VS DEPTH), AND LONGITUDE (FROM SUNRISE AND SUNSET TIMES) FOR PERIODS UP TO ONE YEAR. THE POTENTIALCOMMERCIAL APPLICATION AS DESCRIBED BY THE AWARDEE: THIS RESEARCH IS IN REPONSE TO A NEED FOR BETTER DATA GATHERING. THE PROPOSING COMPANY INTENDS TO MANUFACTURE AND SELL THE ARCHIVAL TAG ONCE IT IS DEVELOPED.
