Holding of juvenile salmonids for surgical implantation of electronic tags: a review and recommendations

Holding of juvenile salmonids for surgical implantation of electronic tags: a review and... Many telemetry-based studies require that fish be sampled from the wild and then held both prior to and after the implantation of an electronic tag.

Abstract

Many telemetry-based studies require that fish be sampled from the wild and then held both prior to and after the implantation of an electronic tag. However, the effects of such holding (or the lack thereof) have yet to be studied intensively. Pre-surgical holding often occurs to facilitate logistical needs of research projects and as an attempt to minimize negative physiological effects due to capture and handling stress. Further, post-surgical holding time and conditions greatly influence the physiological state of fish prior to being returned to the wild. This paper reviews pertinent studies pertaining to the effects of surgical holding on the behavior, physiology, and survival of fishes, with particular emphasis on juvenile salmonids. The effects of individual aspects of surgical holding such as handling, water quality, light conditions, holding density, metabolic scope, and duration of holding are reviewed. Recommendations regarding certain aspects of surgical holding are offered with a goal of reducing bias related to the surgical process.
