I caught several bass today that were tagged with a number and either "WOLFVILLE" or "ACADIA" i was wondering who is collecting this information. All fish were recorded and measured and released alive, if anyone has info it would be appreciated.

Thanks

Please post Tag number, colour, location caught. Jeremy Bloome will collect this data. We tagged about 100 fish this spring while implanted 43 with transmitters to track movement. There would be a scar on the belly.

thx

Found just a tag in Chevrie today... Now reading more, It was one of these tags. I threw it in the woods thinkin it was just a garbage old salmon tag. Will try to find over the weekend. It didnt break off because the loop was not broken.

Hey Guys,

Sorry I am just seeing this thread now! Tyler thanks for making the effort to pass along this info. And thanks to all the familiar names that have helped to point him in the right direction. My striped bass tagging study at Acadia University is still ongoing and we rely very much on anglers to report the tags they catch back to us.

As Owen has said above - please record the tag number (all tags start with the letter J - followed by 4 digits i.e J1234), the date, time, and location caught, and the length if possible. Be aware that the tags also have an address and postal code (B4P 2R6) on them which is not the actual tag number.

If you catch a tagged fish please do the following:

1) Record: a) tag number (J 1 2 3 4 ), b)location, c) date, d) time

2) If releasing the fish please leave tag attached.

3) Forward tag details by posting in this thread or by the contact information below:

We have also been surgically implanting stripers with acoustic telelmetry transmiiters in addition to our regular blue spaghetti tagging. We have tagged fish of all sizes - in both the Stewiacke river this spring, and in the Minas Basin throughout the summer. These tags are internal and the only thing that is visible is a small scar/stitches on the belly of the fish. If you should catch one of these please let me know, and as the tags are valuable and are providing a great deal of information to our study, it would be great if all fish with transmitters could be released. Please keep on the lookout for these fish!

If you run into any of these marked fish please let me know through any of the contact info below:

Is there a representative for the Wolfville fish, or is this all the same study just a different tagging locations?
Hi Tyler - I am the representative for all the fish with Blue Acadia University tags. We have tagged fish at several sites around the Minas Basin, however our home base is in Wolfville and most fish have been tagged at the Guzzle and other areas around Grand Pre. Also, if you happen to encounter any yellow DFO tags you can pass that information along to me and I can forward it to the proper person.

All information on tag returns can be sent to me through any of the contacts listed in the meassage above.

Thanks,
Jeremy

That yellow tag was most likely put in a year or so ago by DFO Biologist ROd Bradford in the spring when the bass are in shubie/stewiacke.How big was the fish?

Hi Jason,

Thanks for taking the time to get me this information. The yellow tag you caught was first tagged back on July 7th 2008 at the Guzzle. Do you remember the date you caught the fish with the yellow tag?

And yes, it would be great if you would write down the information from the tags you catch in the future. Most of the tags I have put out are blue and have a 5 digit code all starting with the letter J and then 4 numbers (ex J1234). Please record the tag number, the date and location caught, and if you can get a quick length measurement that is good too. You can forward along information on any tags that you might find, like the red Virginia one, and I can try to find the right contact person on your behalf.

You can contact me with tag information via the NSF website (jballs) or through contact details below.

also - thanks to all the others that helped direct Jason to my info. Keep those tags returns coming! Some of the tags have now been out for 3 years and many are getting covered in algae and slime, usually it can be rubbed off fairly easily. Thanks again to all those that are continuing to send information, it is very much appreciated!
-Jeremy

That information should be left private , as any lurkers can call up and say they caught these fish from anywheres . Then the data would be useless IMOP .
