What should fishermen look out for particularly in connection with any salmon or sea trout they catch?

Biologists who work with salmon and sea trout often mark the fish that pass through their hands in any of the ways depicted below. Capture of a marked salmon should be reported at once to the appropriate fishery authority. Frequently the address is on the tag or mark.
