Cover Story (view full-size image): Stingray movement ecology in high-energy surf areas remains largely unknown due to the notorious difficulties in conducting research in these environments. Using a blimp as an aerial platform for video surveillance, we overcame some of the limitations of other tracking methods. The tracking data suggest that stingrays may use a depth gradient for orientating their movements and transiting between locations within their home range. Our research also indicates that stingray behavior was influenced by diel periods and tidal states. Considering the increasing threat of anthropogenic development to nearshore coastal environments, the identification of these patterns can better inform management plans. View this paper.
