In times of ever increasing threats to our ocean`s biodiversity, knowing where the animals are and where they go is crucial to protect them. But this is not an easy task. This talk looks at the history of scientific studies to investigate the movements, behavior and migration of marine predators carrying electronic tags in the Azores, the most recent and isolated Archipelago in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean. We will revisit some stories of exciting scientific discovery, from the islands’ volcanic shores to the deep seamounts and the open ocean surrounding them; from sharks, fishes and squids to the largest animal on earth; from the 1980’s prototypes to the current state-of-the-art biotelemetry technology and global efforts of scientists to get an overall clear picture by creating the Ocean Tracking Network (OTN).
