Florida State Tagged Fish

Posted on

Researchers at Florida State University want fishermen to send in FSU tags from any fish they catch (these would be tags with the prefix FSU) with the following information:

(1) type of fish
(2) date of capture
(3) depth of capture
(4) coordinates of where they caught the fish (within a mile, so as not to give away fishing spots)-this can either be in Loran or in Latitude and Longitude
(5) size of the fish
(6) your name, address, phone number and email (if available)

When the scientists receive the tag, your name will be entered in a drawing for a 500 prize, which will be given away at an upcoming meeting in Apalachicola in December 2005. The meeting in Apalachicola will be held to discuss the results of their biological research and the results of the fishing survey
Send Fish Tags to:

Coleman-Koenig Research Laboratory

Fishing For Freedom urges cooperation with researchers that go the extra mile to assure that only factual, unbiased data is entered into our fisheries management. Felicia Coleman Ph. D., Associate Scholar Scientist, for the Department of Biological Science at Florida State University, has proven herself to be that type of Scientist… Therefore Dr. Coleman has our full support.
