Abstract

The goal of this project is to develop a prototype system with a self-powered transmitter that can be eventually used to continuously track and record the position of the Gillaroo trout species along the River Shannon without human interaction. This is achieved by harvesting energy from the fish and its surroundings, implementing a tracking method specific to the aquatic environment of the River Shannon, and by communicating the location of the fish to a command center.
