Tagging of Pacific Predators
Title: Tagging of Pacific Predators
Title abbreviated: TOPP
Creator: Stevens, Jane [Principal Investigator]; et al.
Publisher: Census of Marine Life
Abstract: Tagging of Pacific Predators began in 2000 as one of 17 projects of the Census of Marine Life, an ambitious 10-year, 80-nation endeavor to assess and explain the diversity and abundance of life in the oceans, and where that life has lived, is living, and will live. Several dozen TOPP researchers from eight countries began venturing into offshore waters, remote islands, and along rugged coastlines to attach satellite tags to 22 different species of top predators that roam the Pacific Ocean. As of 2007, they have tagged more than 2,000 animals, including elephant seals, white sharks, leatherback turtles, squid, albatross and sooty shearwaters. [Information of the supplier]
