Tagging Program

Dear Nomads,

In the past, there have been some rumblings amongst some members who wish to partake in a tagging program but have struggled to get hold of tags.

As a Nomads initiative, we tried to secure tags for the smaller tuna (the sorries) and other smaller fish in our competitions, unfortunately ORI and the tagging programs do not support tagging in competitions. However, we have managed to find the source of the tags and hopefully you and your family can now practice environmentally friendly fishing at your leisure.

Attached please find the application form for tags, and below is Stuart Dunlop’s email address to whom you can apply. It will cost R400.00 for the kit.

Download the tagging application form

Kind regards
