3-D Acoustic Tracking of Fish, Sediment-Laden Ice and Large Wood Debris in the Minas Passage of the Bay of Fundy

Researchers used VEMCO animal tracking technology to complete in-situ testing of the path, depth and velocity of fish and objects passing through the Minas Passage. Using hydrodynamic models, they determined the potential for interaction of fish and objects with turbines installed in the water column, and provide advice on risk and mitigation to regulators and developers.
