RR60201-D. An accelerometer tag, comprised of a CEFAS tri-axial accelerometer (bottom) to monitor body movement and orientation, securely attached to Sonotronics PT-4 acoustic transmitter (top) for animal detection and tracking. This technology is currently being utilized in two doctoral shark research projects at the Bimini Biological Field Station (aka the Sharklab) Scientist Lauran Brewster is studying field metabolic rates of nurse sharks (Ginglymostoma cirratum) and juvenile lemon sharks (Negaprion brevirostris). Scientist Robert Bullock is looking at fine scale activity patterns of sub-adult lemon sharks. Bahamas, Atlantic Ocean.<br />
