Fish Tagging

Many fishers want to do more for the fish they catch. Right around Australia, recreational fishers have been involved in plenty of tagging projects from Samson fish, Black Bream, Barramundi, Mulloway and big Bill fish such as Sailfish and Marlin.

Understanding more about our fisheries is vital in ensuring there’s fish for the future and that they can be managed sustainably.

Recfishwest have been involved in  or support multiple fish tagging projects which are ongoing, as tagged fish are caught from time to time.

To find out more about projects that has involved tagging of some of WA’s most iconic species, visit our RFIF page.
