Tagging and marking fish are essential techniques for any fisheries biologist. Marking a fish allows biologists to gather a wide variety of information. Certain marking techniques allow fish to be tracked giving biologists a better understanding of movement and migration patterns. Other mark and recapture methods provide population estimates, fish growth, and estimates of fish and natural mortality.
If your class, group or club would like to have us come and teach a tagging course, please email [email protected].
