NOAA Photo Library Image - fish7946

A research vessel is experimenting with an instrumented buoy system for transmitting data to fishermen on the location, kinds, and abundance of fish schools. Attached to the buoy are chemical receptors that detect chemical residues given off by the fish and detectors that register electromagnetic changes on sensing equipment.
