Shark Tagging

About Wildlife Computers Shark Tags

Our shark finmount shapes are designed to position the antenna as high on the fin as possible to improve Argos transmissions. The robust “memory metal” antennas are custom-made using a nickel-titanium alloy. Antennas are available in standard and heavy-duty configurations. Attachment kits are included with the tag.

If you are studying large pelagic species that periodically bask, consider a Wildlife Computers towed tag. Towed tags are attached to the animal by a long tether and dart anchor. They are positively buoyant allowing them to float at the surface while trailing behind a slow-moving animal. Spot and SPLASH10-F towed designs have been used extensively on manta rays and whale sharks.
