Title: SYSTEMS FOR MONITORING ORGANISMS WITHIN AN AQUATIC ENVIRONMENT
Abstract:
Systems and methods for monitoring organisms within an aquatic environment are described. According to one aspect, an injectable acoustic transmission device (12) includes a body (22) configured to be injected inside of an organism (16), a transducer (30) within the body and configured to convert a plurality of electrical signals into a plurality of data transmissions (18) which are transmitted externally of the body and the organism, a plurality of circuit components (28) within the body and configured to use electrical energy from a power source (24) to generate the electrical signals which are provided to the transducer, and wherein the transducer defines an internal volume and at least one of the circuit components is provided within the internal volume of the transducer.
