Check perch for PIT tags
OAK HARBOR -- Anglers can again help Lake Erie fishery managers by scanning any yellow perch they catch in 2017 for microchips as part of a research study on fish behavior, migration, population size and death rate.
Anglers simply take their catch of yellow perch to one of the scanning facilities and pass their coolers through the scanner to check for microchips. There is no need to remove fish, and the process takes just a few minutes.
The microchips, called PIT tags, are about the size of a grain of rice and work similar to a pet microchip. The part of the fish containing the tag is removed as a part of normal cleaning, so tagged fish are safe to eat.
Visit go.osu.edu/perchscan to view a map of PIT tag scanning stations.
and watch a video about the project at go.osu.edu/perchvideo.
Recapturing previously tagged yellow perch is helping fisheries biologists understand the movements of yellow perch and better manage the Lake Erie yellow perch fishery.
