Tagged Fish – Please Return the Tag

News | Raritan River Initiatives

If you catch a fish with a yellow dorsal loop tag, the tag belongs to the American Littoral Society. We need the tag returned along with the recapture information. To make it easy for you to respond, you can download our tag return form. Complete the form, tape the tag to it and mail it to the address on the form. Download Form
When we receive your form, we enter the data into our database. In return, you and the person who originally tagged the fish will receive:

  • The history of your fish (where it was tagged, how much it has grown)
  • An American Littoral Society fish tagger’s jacket patch
  • Information about our tagging program
  • The knowledge that you have made a contribution to marine fisheries science
If you are interested in becoming a tagger contact Jeff at 732-291-0055 or e-mail jeff@littoralsociety.org.  And visit the American Littoral Society Website for more information at www.littoralsociety.org.
