Albacore tuna tagging reward


Active Member
Colleagues from the tuna biology group at NOAA's Southwest Fisheries Science Center conducted a small electronic tagging experiment this past summer on North Pacific albacore tuna.
Tagged Albacore have a green dart tag in their back.
Archival tags are data recording devices that are implanted in the belly with a stalk sticking out.
The rewards are as follows:
$500: Whole fish w/Archival tag/ $300: Archival tag only/ $20: Dart tag only
For more information please see below:



veni, vidi, fishi
I heard that one of the boats in WP caught one a week or so ago, and kept the dart tag, but sent the belly one home with the belly meat.
