All members of the research team are back home now, and all in all, we had a successful field season. We were able to get a tag to stay attached to a dusky dolphin for 6 hours, which is much longer than we had hoped for during this initial, trial phase. No one has attached this type of suction-cup tag to dusky dolphins before, so we were very happy with our results. We will spend the next few months analyzing our data and making some modifications to our tag design. The next time we go to the field, we hope to get a tag to stay on throughout the night so we can track the feeding behavior of the dolphins. Below is a timeline of events which tracks the progression of our tag development.
