The Pacific Ocean Shelf Tracking (POST) Program seeks to advance understanding of the movement and behavior of marine animals through the use of a large-scale acoustic telemetry and data management system. This collection of papers provides a sample of the diversity of studies that can be conducted when an existing technological infrastructure such as POST is available and easily accessible to researchers. The results obtained reflect the power of an array that provides a scope far greater than that available to a single individual or research group. Where POST was inspired by and contributed to the ambitious Census of Marine Life effort, we hope this collection will stimulate innovative uses of POST and ultimately improve the conservation and stewardship of marine resources in every ocean.
