Cooperative Fish Tagging Project

Initiative Type: Projects

Belém Statement Area: Ocean Resources

The Oceanographic Research Institute?s Cooperative Fish Tagging Project (ORI-CFTP) is a long-term collaborative marine environmental project with the overall aim of ensuring the wise and sustainable use of southern Africa?s marine linefish resources. It involves the voluntary cooperation of conservation-conscious anglers (i.e. anglers who voluntarily tag and release fish they catch) and the marine angling public at large who report the majority of the recaptures (i.e. a fish that is recaught with a tag in it).
