Acoustic tagging provides detailed insights into the movements and behaviors of manta rays, contributing to scientific knowledge and conservation efforts. During the dive at the Catalinas Islands, our primary goal is to spot and tag giant manta rays (Mobula birostris) using this tool. This activity not only allows participants to witness the majesty of these creatures in their natural habitat but also plays a crucial role in collecting valuable scientific data for the organization.
