Hauling in a Sturgeon for Weighing and Tagging

Service haul in a hooked sturgeon in the St. Marys River. As of the end of July, over 200 set lines were deployed and lifted, yielding more than 55 lake sturgeon. Sturgeon caught for the first time have an external "Floy" cinch tag secured to the dorsal fin, along with an internal PIT (passive integrated transponder) tag. Captured sturgeon are measured for total length, fork length, girth, and weight. For more than five years, Lake Superior State University has been collecting data on lake...

Flannelmouth Sucker School Shocked

School of Flannelmouth Sucker (Catostomus latipinnis) getting electrofished on McElmo Creek, Utah. All fish were captured, measured, tagged with a Passive Integrate Transponder (PIT) tag and released. Based on antenna data near the confluence of McElmo Creek and the San Juan River, these fish represent a portion of the mainstem San Juan RIver population that migrates up into McElmo Creek (over 25 km upstream) to spawn before returning to the San Juan River in the following month. These fish...

Mini-Rover Stresses Penguins But Not As Much As Humans | Video

To keep wild King Penguins from stressing out, researchers piloted a rover to collect data from Passive Integrated Transponders tags (PIT-tags). When the rover moved, the penguins’ heart rate rose and their behaviors changed, but when it stopped moving, they went about the day normally. The stress levels were still lower than when human approached them.

Dr. Davis PIT tags a Chinese giant salamander

In order to permanently identify adult Chinese giant salamanders (Andrias davidianus) at the Ningshan Andrias breeding farm in China, Dr. Jon Davis injects a Passive Integrative Transponder (PIT) tag into the tail of a large adult salamander. Each PIT tag has a unique identification number that can be read with a hand-held scanning device to accurately identify individuals in a group. This is the same technology your vet may use to identify your pet in case it gets lost.

Microchip of Dogs

A microchip implant is an identifying integrated circuit placed under the skin of a dog, cat, horse, parrot or other animal. The chip, about the size of a large grain of rice, uses passive RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology, and is also known as a PIT tag (for Passive Integrated Transponder) .

Raritan River Fish Passage & PIT Tagging Study

As part of the overall restoration of the Raritan River, New Jersey's largest interior watershed, a migratory fish passage study is being conducted at the Island Farm Weir fish ladder to assess the passage efficiency of the structure. This video demonstrates how migratory fish (such as the blueback herring in the video) are tagged with Passive Integrated Transponders (PIT). The study is being conducted at a critical time given that several dam removals conducted between 2011-2013 (Calco Dam,...

"PIT" Tag Implanted into Sturgeon

LSSU Fisheries student Meghan Kline shows us what a PIT (Passive Integrated Transponder) tag looks like shortly before she implants it into a captured sturgeon. U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service biologist Scott Koproski explains the function of a PIT tag as Kline sets it into the fish. LSSU Aquatic Research Lab Co-Director Ashley Moerke then verifies the implanted tag with a hand-held scanner. This type of tag is exactly like the implanted microchips that are popular with pet owners. Sturgeon caught...
