Our first attempt at releasing fish that had been angled and tagged. This netting was meant to enclose the fish to ensure the equipment (antenna and transceiver) worked with tagged fish.
Holding the netting for the Pilot Study (Dr. Wilkie)
This is me (Jill) PIT tagging fish after they were angled. I was set up along the side of the river.
This is in the lab. This bucket contains clove oil which we use to anaesthetize the fish before we put the tag into them.
This is in the lab, before I tagged each fish I measured their standard length.
I also weighed the fish before I implanted the tag.
This is the needle used for implanting the tags. There is a tag in it.
Picture to show the size of the tag.
I am tagging a fish here.
Close-up of the tagging.
A lovely picture of me tagging (just joking, I normally look much happier, I am not a photogenic person apparently).
Another close-up of tagging.
This picture was to show that the wound caused by the tagging procedure is quite small.
