Have you caught a tagged fish?

At IMAS, we have a number of tagging programs underway. If you're out fishing or diving, you may spot a tag on an abalone, rock lobster, shark, sand flathead, bream, trumpeter, banded morwong or other fish.

They may be tagged with either a plastic tag, a t-bar tag or an acoustic tag, like these below.

RECORD INFO ABOUT THE TAGGED FISH

Please record as much information about the tagged fish as possible, including:

Not sure how to measure a rock lobster or work out its sex? DPIPWE has a useful guide here.
