Long-term effects of passive integrated transponder (PIT) tagging on the kelp grouper Epinephelus bruneus
The effects of passive integrated transponder (PIT) tagging on the growth and survival of kelp grouper Epinephelus bruneus was examined over 1 year. The overall average mass gain for the 1 year period of the abdominal cavity tagged group was higher than the dorsal muscle tagged group. No significant differences were found in overall specific growth rate and food conversion between control and treatment groups.
