Why report a tagged animal? Why do we need the help of fishermen?
Because from a simple and fast reporting of captured animal, tagged by observers and recaptured by fishermen, you can get new or not confirmed valuable information.

For instance:

Did you know that starting from the number of fish caught in a certain period of time it is possible to trace back to an estimate of the number of individuals in the sea?

Did you know that having available GPS position of the point of release and also the position of the recapture of a tagged animal you can keep track of the movements of these animals?

Did you know that by looking at the distribution of tagged and recaptured individuals you can get a clearer picture of the population structure of different species in the Adriatic Sea? In this way it is possible to provide useful indications for a focused management of resources.
