Cetacean LIMPET

The Low Impact Minimally Percutaneous Electronic Transmitter (LIMPET) is a satellite transmitting tag widely used for cetacean tracking. The tags small size allows for deployment high on the dorsal fin to enable frequent transmissions to the Argos satellites. LIMPET tags are designed to be deployed using Dan-Inject CO2 rifles. Crossbow deployment accessories are also available. Accessories are not included in the price of the tag.
