Over the course of 2020 we developed, trained and meticulously tested machine learning AI software called the BRAIN (Biotactic Research Artificial Intelligence Network). Biological data captured using our M2 and G3 systems can be processed through the BRAIN which will determine species identification, abundance, direction of passage, net daily passage, peak passage rates as well as fish length and condition. For G3 systems streaming online this data analysis is performed each day and data is made available online within 24 hours providing clients with a near-real time understanding of fish dynamics in their system.
Passive Integrated Transponders (PIT), when utilized in fisheries studies, can facilitate the identification and tracking of individual fish without impeding or obstructing the normal biological behaviour of the tagged animal for it's entire life. PIT tags are a reliable, efficient and effective means for monitoring fish movements and habitat utilization over long periods of time. We can design and build PIT tracking antennas to suit specific site or structure specifications for both full-duplex and half-duplex tag types. A single antenna can be utilized to record fish passage, or several antennas can be synchronized together to record fish attraction and passage efficiency, for example, in fishways at dams. Tracking data are logged on-site and transmitted to the internet and by ftp for subsequent analysis.
All antenna systems are manufactured, tuned and tested according to site specifications and specific study details.
