SmartBay Ireland, located in Galway Bay, supports the national marine test facility for the development of innovative products and services for the global maritime sector. The facility has both cabled observatory components, and independently moored systems. Tracking the movements of marine animals is of interest to SmartBay, and a partnership has been developed with the Ocean Tracking Network to add acoustic receivers to the cabled array to report real-time detections of acoustically tagged animals. The cabled acoustic receivers will support tracking work being undertaken with European Sea Bass, Atlantic salmon, and sea trout, as well as other species.
