Default Nova Scotia Striped Bass Tagging Study - I need assistance!

Hey everyone,

My name is Jeremy Broome and I am looking for your assistance. I have recently started the Masters of Biology program at Acadia University in Wolfviille, NS Canada. I am working on a project where I am examining the population characteristics and migratory movements of striped bass found in the Minas Basin during summer. It is well documented that American fish enter the Bay of Fundy/Minas Basin in the summer months to feed. I am hoping to determine the proportion of fish in the summer mixed population that are local Canadian fish or migrant American fish. I hope to do this using both genetic analysis and through tagging and subsequent returns.

Part of my project includes obtaining tissue and scale samples, as well as lengths and weights of the fish. In addition to this I am also tagging all fish caught. The tags being used by me are very similar to those which are being used by the Canadian Department of Fisheries and Oceans, which are yellow. All information from yellow tags should be sent to DFO, while all information from blue tags should be sent to me at the Acadia University Biology Department.

If you catch a fish that is tagged what should you do? (In order of importance)

1) Record the tag number, location, date and time caught.
2) Take any other additional information you can: length, weight, etc.
3) If you can return the fish to the water with the tag attached – please do so.
4) Send all the information above to the address labeled on the tag:

If anyone has any additional questions, concerns, or comments feel free to contact me by email at:

I appreciate your cooperation and good luck fishing!
