Animal Telemetry Network Workshop


Animal Telemetry Network Workshop

Workshop Background

The U.S. Animal Telemetry Network (ATN) is hosting a series of workshops to: 1) identify regional priorities for telemetry observations of aquatic species, including fishes, turtles, pinnipeds, whales and seabirds; 2) determine if priorities could be served by an ATN baseline network; and 3) examine whether the type and extent of existing telemetry assets could adequately satisfy identified requirements. Information generated at the workshop will be used by the ATN to ensure that a concise plan for sufficient funding of the envisioned national ATN program, including infrastructure, operations, integration, and coordination of assets will be achieved.

Workshop Objectives

  • Identify and prioritize the telemetry monitoring/observational needs of regional stakeholders.
  • Identify existing telemetry observation assets and describe scientific and data management capabilities in the Pacific Islands region.
  • Document examples of stakeholder uses and needs of telemetry data from various sectors.
  • Identify opportunities and challenges of animal telemetry in the Pacific Islands region, including regional and national collaborations, data assembly and sharing, and a baseline network approach.

PacIOOS is the first regional association that was certified as a Regional Information Coordination Entity (RICE) by the U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS). Certification provides NOAA and its interagency partners a means to verify that a regional association’s organizational and operational practices, including data management, meet recognized and established standards set by NOAA.
