Telemetry analysis of highly migratory fishes

Fish stocks and breeding populations of sea turtles and marine mammals are often classified according to geographic distribution. While telemetry data is an essential tool for determining habitat utilization and behavior, it also presents unique challenges when applied to highly migratory species. We provide an overview of geolocation techniques and applicable uses of telemetry data. The scale at which inferences may be made is related to the animal physiology, limitations of tagging technology, and assumptions and processes of geolocation techniques. We focus especially on state space models as a link between analysis of different data types and their ability to derive behavior and utilization.
