Abstract

Use of electronic transmitter and monitoring systems to track movements of aquatic animals has increased continuously since the inception of these systems
in the mid-1950s. The purpose of the present report is to provide information about veterinary principles and their incorporation into surgical implantation
procedures for fish. We also intend to provide insight into the unique challenges of field-based aquatic surgical studies. Within this context, 4 aspects of the process for surgical implantation of transmitters in fish (ie, handling, aseptic technique, anesthesia, and implantation) will be described. Effects of surgical insertion of transmitters (ie, tagging) and aspects of the surgical implantation
process where collaboration and professional exchanges among nonveterinarian researchers and veterinarians may be most fruitful will be discussed.
Although this report focuses on surgical implantation, the principles and protocols described here (other than incision and suture placement) are also applicable to studies that involve injection of transmitters into fish
