Rewards for tags.
MetadataShow full item record
More than $2,000 in cash rewards have been earned by Texas anglers for turning in fish tags to coastal fisheries biologists or to the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) Laboratory at Galveston. A cooperative effort between the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and NMFS began in November 1975. Since then coastal fisheries biologists have tagged and released nearly 10,000 fish of various species in the bay systems on the Texas coast.
