is it possible to pin a radio transmitter to an archi?

sadly i missed the discovery program where steve caught those youngsters(no cable),but having bumped into that info via googlesearches, i got to thinking that a catch,tag,release program could provide substantial data.

Howdo ubiquity.

Indeed this is the plan. We couldn't grow the little guys up to maturity (we couldn't afford to feed or accommodate them), so we were going to release them with little transmitters attached. It is still the plan.

Cheers
Steve

That's alright Clem - your answer was so much more informative than mine :biggrin2: If you ever want a job then sing out.

Other things planned ..... hmmmmm.

Steve,

Double Dang.

Where will you embed the transmitter? Statolith? Mantle wall?

Job?

Ja, probably slip it in (looped through) the mantle somewhere up front (just behind the head, dorsally, with disolving link/thread), but I really hadn't taken the idea too far - the little sods went and died on me :frown: . There'll come a time I'm sure (cannot give up now eh!).

I think we'll crack this keeping squid live in captivity within the next four-or-so months (the plan).
Cheers

Ubiquity, anyone is welcome to tag along with us - biology degree, art degree or no degree (I like people with art degrees - they tend to be a bit more balanced than .... urrrrr .... myself). Just tell me when to pick you up from the airport.
