Where to deploy the probes?

As to what geographic areas and depths to target... I do not want to specify exactly. The idea is to maximize the following  parameters listed in order of importance:

(Notice the "likelyhood of recovery" is not listed as one of the criteria above.  Yes, we want to but the probes in areas that they are relatively safe (>75%/year recovery rate) but it is not our main concern.  We expect to lose some probes.  Participants should  not worry about losing a probe occasionally.)
