From 2017 the Loughs Agency will be tagging Sea trout with “T-Bar Anchor Tags”.
The tagging is part of ongoing studies into the ecology and migration patterns of Foyle Sea trout and will inform future management of local Sea trout populations.
All anglers are asked to assist with identifying and reporting any Sea trout they catch with one of these tags.
The tags will be orange, approximately 5cm in length and have LAGENCY TEL 00447736374136 No???? printed on them. Please call or text the telephone number on the tag (00447736374136) to report your catch.
The Sea trout does not need to be retained, catch and release is recommended. Please do not remove the tag from the fish as it may be caught again and provide further useful information.
The important pieces of information to note are:
· Tag number (4 digits)
· Date caught
· Location caught (River and stretch)
· Length (if possible)
Thank you for your co-operation with this study.
