About the Marking and Tagging Program 

The Hatchery Marking and Tagging Program conducts the suite of activities related to mandated mass marking of hatchery fish including marking and tagging of juvenile fish, bio sampling of returning adult fish, providing assistance with recording and summarizing data, and associated reporting. The group is responsible for aiding in studies evaluating the effects of the various marking techniques on condition, growth, behavior, and survival of fish to various life stages. These evaluations may also concentrate on topics associated with operations, efficiencies, and effectiveness of automated marking trailers.
