Fish Tagging Kits

Have you ever wondered if the fish you caught today was the same fish you caught yesterday, last week, or even last year? Collecting specific information about individual fish in your pond is a useful part of pond management. And one of the best ways to do that is to tag the fish you catch.
Fisheries biologists routinely use tags to collect valuable data on growth rates, population sizes, and migratory habits of many fish species. Today, pond owners are realizing that tagging largemouth bass is one more pond management tool they can use to build and maintain top-notch fisheries. Not only is tracking bass with tagging and record keeping a good way to know what is happening in the pond, it can also be a lot of fun!
Catching a tagged fish allows you to match information you have on that particular fish. For example, you may learn that a tagged bass has been caught and released several times, that it has grown x-amount over the years or that it has been caught in the same location.
When it comes to knowing what swims in your pond and controlling its balance, nothing beats an annual electrofishing evaluation. But if you want to add a management tool that is interesting, helpful and fun, we highly recommend tagging. Please e-mail us or contact one of our offices if you would like to order a kit for yourself or someone else.
