The short-term tag we deployed on Monday popped up as scheduled on Saturday. It appears as though the fish moved offshore and into warmer waters than in which it was tagged. The TAG team is currently downloading the data from the tag and we'll take a look at both the temperature and depth records to see what this fish did after it was tagged. It will be about 10 days befor ethe entire dataset is transmitted through the satellites but we should start getting a pretty good idea of the environmental preferences of this fish in the next day or two. We're still watching the weather and hoping to get out on the water again one of these days. Stay tuned!
