Species Information

Tagging Paddlefish

All harvested paddlefish must be tagged with the snagger’s own tag. The tag should be placed through the skin at the base of the dorsal fin (see picture) and locked so that it cannot fall out. If a fish is cut up, the tag must accompany the meat, with that por􀆟on of the back and dorsal fin necessary to maintain the tag as sealed to the fish.
