Aquatic species provide global food security, contribute billions of dollars annually through recreational sport and tourism and are culturally significant to many aboriginal and First Nations groups.
Despite their importance, little is know about the survival, movements and migrations, habitat use, and response to the changing ocean climate of many species.
Managers and policy makers require profound knowledge and understanding of marine ecosystems to reduce and avoid human impacts.
Ocean Tracking Network’s global monitoring network is providing the scientific foundation for sustainable oceans management.

OTN’s mission is to inform the sustainable management and stewardship of aquatic animals by providing knowledge on their movements, habitats and survival in the face of changing global environments.

OTN is deploying Canadian-made acoustic receivers and oceanographic monitoring equipment in all of the world’s five oceans.
This global receiver infrastructure comprehensively examines the local-to-global movements of tagged marine animals such as sharks, sturgeon, eels, and tuna, as well as other marine species including squid, sea turtles, and marine mammals.
