    At our farm we do a lot of catch and release fishing and I was just wondering if there was a way to safely 'mark' a fish so that we could tell if we ever caught it again.

    You could notch a fin or the tail, the DNR does it to mark the trout they stock here in Iowa, so it mustn't hurt the fish. I don't know exactly how they do it though...

      Huntfishtrap probably has a more sensible idea, but if you want to go high tech, there are also fish tags you can buy and websites that will keep track of the information on the fish.

        You just use a pair of scissors. You can take off enough of the tail to make it identifiable. Make the cuts all similar. They normally will only be identifiable for a season. It's not permanent.

            Hi...


            I'll go with 6phunter, although I would use a simple paper punch...again, in the tail fin.


            NOTE: I would also contact local Fish & Game to see about legality.
