PTAGIS Tour

This tour follows the life journey of the fish to tell the story of PTAGIS. You'll see how PTAGIS tracks fish marked with a PIT tag, and makes valuable data accessible to researchers seeking information about fish movement and behavior. The tour was originally an interactive flash application, but has been converted into a video following the discontinuation of Adobe Flash in January 2021. There is no sound in this video.
