Evaluation of a non-invasive tagging system for laboratory studies using three-spined sticklebacks Gasterosteus aculeatus

J Fish Biol. 2009 Nov;75(7):1868-73. doi: 10.1111/j.1095-8649.2009.02374.x.


A non-invasive tagging system for individual identification of three-spined sticklebacks Gasterosteus aculeatus was evaluated. The tags were easily detected via video, and tagged and non-tagged fish did not differ in terms of growth, activity levels or shoaling behaviour.
