Leveraging Biomark Litz Cord Antenna Systems to Evaluate Fish Passage and Movement

Leveraging Biomark Litz Cord Antenna Systems to Evaluate Fish Passage and Movement

Photos were taken by Mike Hall, Field Biologist.

Biomark’s Biological Services team is leveraging Biomark Litz Cord Antenna Systems to evaluate fish passage and movement in side channels of the Lemhi River.

Field Biologist Mike Hall explained, “We are using these antennas in a recently completed restoration area as well as an area where restoration efforts are slated to begin in the next year or two.”

This will allow the team a great opportunity to gather pre and post restoration data.

The Litz cord antenna systems are set up in “pass-through” orientation allowing the biologists to effectively detect fishes in all portions of the water column at both high and low flows.

We are also utilizing submersible antennas in the main channel of the river for monitoring purposes.

Recording: Small Scale Monitoring System Webinar

Recording: Small Scale Monitoring System Webinar

 Welcome to our Biomark Webinar Series. Watch as Director of Project Sales, Steve Anglea walks you through the small-scale detection system. This system is a cost-effective way to monitor small mammals, like bats, rats, ground squirrels, pikas and petrels across multiple locations. Steve outlines the difference between the different sizes of antennas, monitoring boxes, and cords to choose from. Watch as he introduces the all-new Device Manager Software! Steve walks through the different entities of Device Manager using the small scale system. He utilized two different small-scale antennas as well as multiple different types of tags to complete the demonstration. You can also see all the different pass-through and pass-by orientations that set-up using the small-scale system. Learn how to pull data from Device Manager and how to adjust certain settings to ensure you monitor your data seamlessly! If you have any questions after the webinar, please contact customerservice@biomark.com or call 208-275-0011. One of our Biomark experts would be happy to answer any questions on your small-scale monitoring application! 


Biomark’s Inflatable Floating Antenna System

Biomark’s Inflatable Floating Antenna System

The Biomark Inflatable Floating Antennas are ideal for mobile detection applications and small-scale, short-term monitoring projects. The unit easily deflates and rolls up into a custom duffle bag for mobility. In response to challenging research needs, Biomark incorporated UV-resistant whitewater raft material in our inflatable antenna design. The result is a durable, multipurpose antenna.

Specifically designed for the IS1001 24V readers.

IS1001 reader, submersible enclosure, and cabling all sold separately.

Specifically designed for the IS1001 24V readers.

Advanced Analytics for Fish & Habitat Relationships Webinar Recording

Advanced Analytics for Fish & Habitat Relationships Webinar Recording

Understanding what features comprise high quality habitat is critical to endangered species recovery. Ecological datasets often incorporate nonlinear relationships, correlated variables, and substantial noise: all of which make establishing the relationship between species and their habitat challenging. Biomark researchers have developed advanced analytical tools that pair abundance and habitat characteristics data to define these elusive relationships. Leveraging a suite of modeling techniques such as habitat suitability (HSI), habitat preference, and quantile random forest (QRF) allow for a comprehensive approach to evaluating habitat quantity and quality.

This webinar recording showcases how generating near real-time estimates of carrying capacity by species and life stage, can provide actionable information for habitat restoration and recovery planning.
