Tag and mark types
List of tags and mark types with hyperlinks to further descriptions and pictures.
Tagging methods manual
List of methods which have been chosen to represent the methodology involved in tagging and marking
experiments, with hyperlink to documents with methods description.
Applications analysis and modelling
This section describes how the various tagging and marking techniques are useful and important
and also some of the drawbacks.
Database of tagging experiments
Entrance to a database with various tagging experiments. The objective of this section is to
give information on tagging experiments in the past and present. Anyone can add information on their experiments
through a data-entry form active on the web-site. This data base can be searched.
Search for recaptures
The objectives of this section is to provide search facilities to find the Institute of release,
for tags which are found. Can also be used to find all sorts of information concerning tagging activity e.g. how
many tags released by institutes, species, experiments, locality and groups. This section can also be used check
on tagging situation within institute and to increase information flow to general public and to facilitate recovery
This section is decentralised in organization that is the databases are based within the institutes
listed. The maintenance of each database is the responsibility of particular institute. This gives opportunities
to use this search facilities within institutes and for interactions with local fishermen or fish-industry. That
is why the contents under MRI has Icelandic explanations besides English explanations.
Recommendations of the CATAG
Recommendations made by the CATAG group on improvements of methodology in tagging experiments
relating to fisheries research and management. These are the conclusions of the four work-groups and a recommendation
for future activities in the field.
