• protocols and standards for operation and maintenance of PIT tag arrays,
• protocols and standards for data management and communication of resulting information, and
• considerations for future applications of PIT tag arrays in the region.

Anticipated Outcomes

• Identify best practices and establish processes to ensure continued access to this information
• Identify needs for future coordination among practitioners (topics, participants, mechanisms, timelines)
• Set the stage for future discussion of an optimized network of PIT arrays for designated purposes
• Inform future operations and maintenance plans for equipment management and contracting

Who should attend? Monitoring practitioners who use PIT tag arrays and data stewards and analysts who work with the
resulting data.

What are the benefits of attending? You will hear your colleagues’ best practices, lessons learned, and have the opportunity to set the stage for future coordination and more cost-effective operation.
