New Experiment has Researchers Satellite Tagging Captive Mahi-mahi

A new video documents why Ph.D students Lela Schlenker is satellite tagging captive mahi-mahi at the University of Miami’s Experimental Hatchery.

The tags are capable of recording location, depth, temperature, light levels and acceleration.

Findings from this study will shed light on the under-studied spawning behavior of mahi and is also the first time such events have been recorded.

These studies will then be replicated in the field on wild mahi-mahi.
