Innovasea introduces NexTrak, acoustic telemetry system
October 11, 2023 By Hatchery International staff
Innovasea has introduced NexTrak, an acoustic telemetry system that improves performance in the water while providing the technological foundation for fish tracking.
NexTrak uses digital technology and advanced coding schemes “to improve coverage, extend range and provide researchers with more accurate data.”
“Put simply, NexTrak is a giant leap forward because it does everything better than previous acoustic telemetry systems,” said Mark Jollymore, president of Innovasea. “Whether it’s generating more robust and accurate data sets or enabling the study of new habitats for the first time, NexTrak represents the future for aquatic animal researchers.”
According to the company, the new system delivers less interference and fewer tag collisions, signal strength data to better show the proximity of fish to receivers, and higher quality data and enhanced post-processing capabilities.
The first NexTrak receivers will be available for order later this year. They will be part of a larger NexTrak ecosystem that includes new receivers, transmitters and enhanced cloud-based tools that will provide researchers with a complete picture of animal behavior.
