Casper, WY 82601
DESCRIPTION: In recent years the availability and use of technology in fisheries assessments has increased dramatically. This symposium will focus on the applied use of this technology including hydroacoustics, RFID tags, acoustic tags, side-scan SONAR, improved GIS techniques, stable isotope analysis, remote sensing, and new net designs. The objective of this symposium is to increase awareness of these new gears and techniques, and to show real-world examples of their use. Presentations will discuss both the power of these new tools and the unique challenges that arise when developing and testing new techniques.
