The Alabama Marine Resources Division is conducting a study of reef fish. Biological staff from the Division will be tagging various reef fish species including snappers, groupers, triggerfish, jacks, grunts, and porgies. This research is funded through a grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Federation (NFWF). To learn more about this organization visit their website.
Example of an AMRD Fish Tag
The Division’s tags are a yellow streamer applied just below the fish’s dorsal fin, in the left “shoulder.” Text printed on the tag says “AL MARINE RESOURCES” with a 4-digit tag number and the Division’s fish tag website.
