Studying the movements of animals within their environment is a central facet of ecology. It is also fascinating and a lot of fun. I have had the great fortune to have spent the past 20 years researching the movements of fish in various parts of Australia. In this presentation, I use examples across a range of species and geographic locations to show how established and emerging technologies can be used to understand the secret lives of these cryptic critters; and how lessons learned from studying fish can be applied to the field of movement ecology more generally.
Target audience: Open to the public.
