Fishermen's News - The Advocate for the Commercial Fisherman

Photos from: Researchers Ask Fishermen to Watch for Transponders

Researchers are asking commercial fishermen and others to keep a weather eye out for transponders like this, which were launched in the wake of the 2011 tsunami that devastated parts of Japan and sucked an estimated 2 million tons of debris into the ocean. The transponders were designed to trace the movement of the debris. Photo courtesy of Oregon State University.
