tagged steelhead reporting

Post by fishermandan » 01 Dec 2012, 23:53

a buddy recently caught a tagged fish . he is a novice angler and didnt know to take down the number on the tag, but is clearly visible in the quick pick he took of the tag.
it is not hard to find but here is the link for tag reporting on the credit. maybe this can be a pinned topic?http://www.craa.on.ca/reportataggedfish.htm

Consider the information you can get from a tagging program and it's value to managment:
-Exploitation (harvest rate)...especially if tagging is conducted in conjunction with a random creel survey
-Population size (mark recapture...Petersen Estimate)...fish must be clipped to determine tag loss
-Movement patterns (around the lake, distance up and down a stream etc.)
-Stray rates (do fish return to their home stream, spawning location etc.)
-Growth rates (stream life to lake life, growth between spawning years etc.)
-Age and life history validation (aging tissues taken when marked and recaptured)
Hope this helps.

This is for both Canadian and American anglers

Lower Niagara River ~ The big news on the local (US) fishing scene is the fact that lake trout season will be opening up this week, set for Jan. 1, 2013. Area anglers can legally target lake trout once the season opens, with the lower Niagara River and the Niagara Bar off the mouth of the river your two best spots for these native fish. Just a reminder that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is conducting a study on lake trout and they have placed a floy tag in the dorsal fin of 72 fish. If you catch one of these fish, either call the fish and wildlife service offices located on the tag or clip the tag and place it into the special box located at the fish cleaning station of Lewiston Landing.
