In the studies and conservation of the biology of the different species of cetaceans and marine fish, scientists often have to identify individually radio labeled or equipped with GPS. Normally marks or scars are only available for the individual recognition of the exemplars, which extremely obstructs the monitoring task.
In the case of fish, traditional tagging systems do not permit remote identification, which makes necessary the recapture to ensure the identification.
Our dorsal tags are made of flexible plastic sheets and are equipped with high durability for the hard marine conditions. A big range of sizes allows the use in any species, from the different species of whales and minke, to killer whales and other species. The possibility of any color, shape or size also allows its use in different species of fish and sharks and its easy read allows the collaboration of divers, pleasure boats and other partners in the monitoring of the species. Our customers can adapt the design of their tags to the fastening system chosen (harpoons, cupping, etc..).
