CCAMLR tags must be ordered in sets of 1000 tags. It is recommended that for each set of 1000 tags ordered, two tagging guns be purchased. To order any tags and tagging equipment, please use the Tagging Equipment Order Form.
In addition to purchasing tags, tagging guns and needles a Tagging Equipment box is also available for purchase (A$30.00). The Tagging Equipment box consists of the following items:
- one waterproof storage box large enough to hold tags, guns and spare needles;
- plastic container for storing damaged or partially used magazines, spare needles etc.;
- CCAMLR pen;
- CCAMLR tag photo template ruler.
Please note that we no longer require recaptured tags to be returned. Instead, please take photographs of any recovered tags using the supplied CCAMLR tag photo template rule as a background, and return these photographs along with your electronic vessel data. The CCAMLR tagging protocol and instructions are available online here.
