CATS utilizes an attachment system for large sharks (whale-, white- and tiger sharks) that gets deployed on the dorsal fin and does not entail any deep penetration of the animal tissue.
CATS are able to deploy short-, medium- and long-term devices on sharks. We can attach the CATS-Cam, CATS-Diary, CATS-Satag, or all in one. CATS also offer different ways to access the data based on project requirements and budget. We are able to offer device retrieval or direct live data download without the need to retrieve the tag again.
