The University of Otago has ongoing fish-tagging programmes throughout Otago-Southland. The success of this research relies on you. We need you to send us as much information as possible when you catch a tagged fish. With your help we can determine how many fish are out there, where they live and how fast they grow. This information will help support more robust management of our small scale, locally important fisheries.

Currently we have tagging programs in:

  • East Otago
  • North Otago

If you have any questions about this research please contact Gaya by email.

GPS position would be ideal but if this is not available, a rough position will suffice (e.g. 1km east of Brinn's Point).
