6 Purpose As stated in the document This PIT Tag Marking Procedures Manual provides protocols and standards on the PIT tag marking station(s), fish handling techniques, anesthesia, tag injection, and information on data collection, verification, and transfer to the regional database. In addition to this manual, the PTSC and PTAGIS produced a PIT tag training video that is available from PTAGIS. If you have specific questions that are not answered by this document or the video, or if you would like to receive training, please contact a PTSC representative for assistance.

17 Special Notices Since July 1992, only disinfected injectors and tags have been approved for use in the Columbia River Basin for all hatchery and wild anadromous fish. This requirement eliminated the use of semiautomatic injectors. Disinfection using standard hand held injectors requires immersing the needle, syringe, and the end of the injector push rod in 70-80% ethyl alcohol or 60-80% isopropyl alcohol for a period of not less than 10 minutes. Currently, there is a single-use injector system (SUI) available to which the disinfection requirement does not apply, as long as the needle assembly used in this system is not re-used. If a tagger wishes to re-use the single-use needle assembly, disinfection between fish is required.

19 Special Notices The PTSC and FPAC members do not endorse or recommend any tagging location in anadromous salmonids other than what is described in this manual. Tagging in any location other than the abdominal cavity increases the risk of human consumption.
