PTN/MIGRACORV/MEAGRE: Using acoustic telemetry to study the migration movements of the Meagre along the NE Atlantic European coast.
B.R. Quintella; J.P. Marques; P.R. Almeida; J.L. Costa; Domingos; C.M. Alexandre et al. (2019). Studying Meagre migrations and the importance of Tejo estuary as a spawning and nursery habitat for the species.

Availability: Unrestricted after moratorium period
Data are initially restricted, but the access condition relaxes to academic or unrestricted once a specified period of time after an event (such as collection, publication, completion of QC procedures or project cessation) has elapsed

Study of Meagre (Argyrosomus regius) movements with acoustic biotelemetry. More than 50 individuals are being tagged with acoustic transmitters (ID-MP13 and ID-HP16) in the Tejo estuary, an important spawning and nursery habitat for the species in the European NE Atlantic coast. Tracking will be supported by the acoustic network of Tejo, which is composed of 16 acoustic telemetry receivers (VR2Tx), and by the Portuguese Tracking Network (PTN), spreading along the coastline and other major estuaries.
