Since 1974, the Marine Resources Division’s Office of Fisheries Management has sponsored a cooperative Marine Game Fish Tagging Program. In addition to being a useful tool for promoting the conservation of marine game fish and increasing public resource awareness, the tagging program has provided biologists and fisheries managers with valuable information on population dynamics, movements, and biology of marine game fish. Partnering with the angling community has proven to be an efficient and cost effective means for collecting data. This brochure discusses the following: About the program, tagging equipment, handling, tagging, reporting data, conservation, frequently asked questions, sources of interest and fish identification publications.
