The purpose of this project is to monitor the movement of drifting objects in the eastern Pacific tuna fishing grounds and to study the association of tunas with these objects. Primary tag: One plastic floating square, 2 ft × 2 ft × 3/16 in, tethered to the object. Secondary tag(s): One or more colored plastic tags, 6 in × 4 in, attached directly to the drifting object.
