Demersal Tagging

After seeing pictures of Andy and Tim tagging a number of different demersal species, We were just wondering how you go about getting the required equipment/permissions to tag Demersal species, would give us a chance to tag many of the undersize fish we catch and release.
Tried a google and didn't come up with anything

Cheers
Dean

Dean - The best way to get involved is through an ANSA club. Most of the clubs will have someone who can get the gear for you and show you how etc.

If you have any problems going through those avenues let me know and I will follow up official channels through the fisheries department.
