Canadian ocean science in the spotlight at AAAS 2010
Date:2/16/2010

Canadian leadership in ocean sciences will be front and centre at this week's meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) in San Diego.

On Friday, February 19, Dalhousie University's Ron O'Dor will talk about the ambitious plans for the international Ocean Tracking Network (www.oceantrackingnetwork.org) to which Canada has committed $45 million, including up to $10 million from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC).

The researcher pioneered the development of acoustic tags that collect data from free swimming animals and helped propel Canada's Dalhousie University and Halifax into a world-class centre for the use of this technology.

He will explain how ocean science is being revolutionized by the devices (dubbed by some as "Blackberries for Fish") and by strategically situated ocean networks that relay data from the animals to scientists. He will talk about some of the remarkable insights already gained from animals as diverse as tuna, salmon, turtles and squid.
