and Sonic Tracking of an Endangered Species
In December 2004, December 2005, December
2008, February 2010, and January 2011
Biotactic assisted Bio-West (Utah) with the
set-up of a combined sonic and
radio-telemetry project (including capture,
surgery/tagging, preliminary tracking) of
federally endangered razorback suckers (Xyrauchen
texanus) in Lake Mead, Nevada/Arizona.
This project was designed to identify
perhaps some of the last remaining
previously unknown areas in the world where
wild razorback sucker populations
successfully reproduce and recruit.
