Permanent acoustic receiver network in the Azores Arquipelago. The network uses VR2W and VR4, listening at 69kHz more

Seamounts are under increasing pressure. The Azores telemetry array is the only site in the world where seamount species (both resident and visitor) are being systematically monitored for their distribution and habitat use patterns. It is complemented by an array at various island shorelines and slopes. The information gathered is being used to inform management plans for seamount and highly migratory species and habitats, and provide relevant long-term information in the north Atlantic basin context.
