Abstract. Radio frequency fish transmitters capable of relaying temperature or pressure information and a multichannel recording system have been developed and used successfully in the field. Both transmitters operated on pulse rate variation with either temperature or depth. Design considerations for temperature and pressure dependant pulse rates are discussed, including power supply variation, sensitivity ranges, drift, size, power consumption and temperature variation. The receiving-recording system is described, including a 16 channel programmable scanning receiver and a pulse decoder.
