Camrin Braun has a new paper out in PLoS ONE on the diving behavior of reef mantas in the Saudi Arabian Red Sea.  The data comes from pop-up satellite archival transmitting (PSAT) tags that have revolutionized our understanding of the vertical and horizontal movements of large ocean animals over the last 15 years. You can check it out here:

Diving behavior in Manta Rays – Braun et al.

The work was conducted as part of Cam’s Master’s thesis work while at the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), working with Prof. Michael Berumen. ┬áMore to come on these fascinating rays soon!
