Potential awards for tagged fish

Fish are tagged to help fish managers learn about the distribution, movements, relative abundance and growth rates of fish. Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) awards anglers who provide information about tagged fish. If you catch tagged fish, write down the tag colour and number, the species, location where it was caught, length, weight, sex (if you can determine it) and the lure used to catch it. Please also call the number below at DFO Inuvik to see if more information is required and let them know that this tag has been caught. Mail in this info along with the tag to:
