ICES HQ, Copenhagen, Denmark

Registration for this workshop is closed


This workshop will review recent tagging programmes for fish (including shellfish) in ICES area. It will:

  • summarise data from recent and ongoing tagging programmes, primarily focussing on mark-identification tagging, but also using the platform to collate summary information on acoustic and electronic tagging, conducted by national institutes (2000-2022)

  • review relevant guidelines and protocols used by national institutes for handling, tagging and releasing fish, and identify best practices for both relevant tag types and species

  • identify opportunities for improved coordination and collaboration in relation to mark-recapture studies, including specifying where such studies could additionally address relevant data gaps for species and stocks assessed by ICES and where existing studies could be used to enhance assessments or ecosystem analyses

  • identify a timeline for future Expert Group meetings on tagging
