The specific objectives of this portion of the study were to 1) determine the range and fidelity of the AUV-based acoustic receiver/hydrophone system for recording ultrasonic reference transmitters (similar to those used for biotelemetry studies) placed at known locations and depths in a complex marine environment, and 2) compare telemetry data obtained for reference transmitters and free-ranging acoustically-tagged animals using both AUV and vessel-based tracking to determine if AUV platforms provide comparable or better information than conventional methods.
