Acoustic tracking technology has been used for some time to study the migration and movement patterns of fish. In Lake Erie, this is no different, as crews from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) have been relying on acoustic tags for years to study sportfish in the most shallow of the Great Lakes.
