stripercoverWelcome to the American Littoral Society fish tagging program, the largest volunteer, salt-water fish tagging program in the U.S. You will find all the information you need to join nearly 1,500 taggers from Maine to the Gulf of Mexico who participate in our nationally recognized, catch-and- release program.

We've just celebrated 47 years of sharing information with fellow anglers and helping scientists learn more about the fish we catch and their habitat. If you don’t find the information you need, contact Jeff Dement, our fish tagging program director at 732-291-0055 X106 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
