The Environment Society of Oman (ESO), in technical partnership with Five Oceans Environmental Services LLC, has completed the final round of satellite tagging of Arabian Sea Humpback Whales in Oman. A total of 14 whales have been tagged since whale tagging was initiated in 2014. Through sponsorship from Renaissance Services SAOG, local and international scientists deployed 5 satellite transmitters on Arabian Sea Humpback Whales within the Gulf of Masirah over the last 2 weeks in order to track their movements. The use of advanced technologies such as satellite transmitters has enabled researchers to gain valuable information that would otherwise have taken months of field work to obtain. Once deployed, the tags emit a daily signal whenever the whales surface and are expected to transmit for anything between 1-4 months.
