This survey was created for the purpose of designing training schools and workshops on aquatic animal telemetry. We would appreciate your help in identifying the interests, and knowledge gaps - for us to provide programs for your training needs.
Training schools are part of a COST action (#18102) titled "The European Aquatic Animal Tracking Network" - a European initiative to promote tracking of aquatic animals in EU member countries and beyond.
