Abstract

Tagging is a widespread method used to acquire data on fish populations. Successive steps to obtain a practical tagging method for European sturgeon are detailed, and a list of different tags used in Acipenser sturio and Acipenser oxyrinchus in Europe is drawn up. The need to bring together tagging information at the European level is pointed out.
