PTN/ATLAZUL/rays: Tracking the movements of rays in the Southwest Alentejo and Vicentine Coast Marine Park
Silva, A.F.; J.P. Marques; J.L. Costa; P.R. Almeida &  B.R. Quintella (2022). Tracking the movements of rays in the  Southwest Alentejo and Vicentine Coast Marine Park.

Availability: This work is licensed under meaning it is under moratorium until 2026-07-06


Tracking the movement patterns of rays (Raja undulata, R. clavata, R. montagui) within Southwest Alentejo and Vicentine Coast Marine Park and adjacent areas. 20 rays were tagged with acoustic transmitters (HP16) and movements monitored with automatic receivers (TBR800 Release - listening at 69kHz) deployed at 7 locations, 30 km along the cost of Alentejo
