Bergen Telemetry Network
Operated by Laboratory for Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries at NORCE
Applied and fundamental freshwater research laboratory in Bergen, Norway
What is Bergen Telemetry Network?
Bergen Telemetry Network is a research infrastructure consisting of nearly 200 active receivers that are moored on buoys or concrete anchors to detect tagged fish, and the goal is to conserve natural resources by giving research-based evidence to management through the use of telemetry and this network of receivers in research. The network are designed to cover the urban area directly downtown in Bergen as part of our BOATS project, as well as the area to the north, the Osterfjord, and the largest river draining into the fjord, the Vosso River. The network is operated by NORCE LFI with funding from the Norwegian Research Council, The Environmental Directorate, and NORCE internally.
