The Virginia Game Fish Tagging Program is an effort to involve the recreational angling public in the conservation and management of marine finfish. The program provides an avenue for anglers with an interest in conservation to assist in collecting scientific information about the movements and biology of fish by tagging targeted species of marine game fish. Susanna Musick, Marine Recreation Specialist for the Marine Advisory Program at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science, will explain the Game Fish Tagging Program and discuss how this research has helped biologists learn about favorite sport fishing species in Virginia.
