Established in 1979, VEMCO is the world leader in the design and manufacture of acoustic telemetry equipment used by researchers worldwide to study behaviour and migration patterns of a wide variety of aquatic animals from salmon smolts to great whites.
VEMCO acoustic transmitters and receivers enable researchers to conduct world class studies in lakes, rivers and oceans that require real-time active tracking; long-time, large scale passive monitoring; fine scale positioning with detailed accuracy; and/or environmental monitoring.
Developed in a Maritime Canadian university research laboratory (Meet the Inventors!), the VEMCO product line includes various types and sizes of underwater acoustic transmitters that are attached to fish, automated receivers for long term fish behavioural studies, receivers that deliver real-time, high-resolution position information, and temperature data storage recorders.
