Fish Passage in the Mississippi River Basin

Telemetry Identification


This site is maintained by the Fisheries and Illinois Aquaculture Center at Southern Illinois University.  It summarizes the locations of fish implanted with ultrasonic transmitters in the Mississippi River System.  Several projects are underway and this site is intended to serve as a clearinghouse for telemetry data acquired by stationary receivers (VR2W; visit Vemco site) at several locations in the MRS.  Green triangles indicate the current locations of functional receivers.  Please contact either Sara Tripp or Jim Garvey for further information about these receivers.  Data should only be used by the personnel or agencies responsible for implanting transmitters in fishes.  This project is sponsored by the St. Louis and Rock Island Districts, US Corps of Engineers.

receiver plus standPIs... as you release more sonically tagged fish into the area please send the species, length, weight, and river mile released to Sara Tripp to keep the data base up to date.  If you deploy logging receivers, please notify us as well.  We will update this web site regularly (about monthly).  If possible, use this form when providing tag data and receiver locations to us (Excel formal):



We also have created a prototype data service to the telemetry community...please refer to (html) to check it out.  You need a username and password - contact Sara Tripp for this information.  More documentation will be forthcoming.  This site provides the locations of telemetered fish and actual coordinates for receivers in the Mississippi River Basin.
