Whale Shark (Rhincodon typus) with PAT (Satellite Tag) (PAT tag means Pop off Archival Tag) These tags are designed to release and float to the surface on a programable date. The tag determines its location using a light sensor (Geo location) thereby measuring latitude and longitude.
The project is a multi-institutional venture between US Davis, CDRS and GNPS in order to study Shark migration between Cocos, Malpelo and Galapagos Islands and possibly the coast of Ecuador and the local usage of biodiverse and shark loving habitat around Wolf and Darwin Islands. 'Shark Hotspots'.
