Tag A Tiny 2009 Update!

The end of tuna season is fast-approaching in the northwest Atlantic!

The Tag a Tiny program has had its most successful year to date, handing out 1520 tags! Thanks for the donations that keep this project going. About 200 tagging reports have been returned to the LPRC, with more coming in every day! If you have tagged a fish with one of our tags, it's not too late to send it in.

To date, we have given out almost 5000 conventional tags. We have received tagging reports for 850 tags. Keep your eyes out for these tuna. They provide valuable information on migration, management, and age and growth.

Every bit of information helps, we look forward to hearing from you! See our website for updates on our most exciting outreach program.
