Tagging the Large Ocean Predators

Conservation & Preservation

I just finished watching a TED talk by Barbara Block on tagging not only bluefin tuna, but salmon sharks and other large predator fish.

Her team's 10+ year study shows all manner of fascinating data on where these fish and other creatures go to feed and reproduce. 

Shown alongside data such as ocean temperature, the patterns are fascinating and give us an insight into how these creatures interact and travel world wide.

Take a look at the Barbara's talk and visit the Mission Blue site for more information on bluefin tuna and its need for protection. There are other TED talks on this topic as well.

Take a look at Tagging of Pacific Predators (TOPP) as well - all sorts of interesting things on this site.
