TitleTesting tag attachments to increase the attachment duration of archival tags on baleen whales
AuthorsA. Szesciorka, J. Calambokidis, J. Harvey
AbstractAs biologging technology has advanced to study whale behavior, various tag attachment methods have been developed. Suction cup attachments were developed for short-term (<24 h) studies using high-resolution archival tags, and implantable or dart attachments were developed for long-term (months) studies using coarse-resolution satellite tags. The purpose of this study was to test various tag attachment configurations to increase the deployment duration of archival tags while minimizing potential physical impacts to the whale.
