What to do with a tagged sole?

If you catch a tagged sole, please record the date, the position of the catch (lat-long) and if possible the total length of the sole.

If the tag is yellow, you can keep the sole, or release it if it looks well alive. If the tag is red, please keep it for us if you can (frozen) , even if it is below the minimal landing size.

You can also contact us by e-mail smac@ifremer.fr, by phone 00 33 6 43 04 05 11.

If you are in the UK, you can also contact our colleagues from CEFAS and MMO. If you are in Belgium, please contact ILVO, and finally if you are in the Netherlands please contact WUR, they will transfer the info to us. We will then be able to organise the collection of fish with red tag (frozen).
