Wonderful blogs, but about the last two paragraphs (mean I don't really understand. Can you explain it?

By doing we learn.


cheap jordans: Were you wanting to know about the microchips? They put a microchip in each fish to identify that individual fish - the same kind of microchip you can get to identify your pet in case it gets out of its collar. It is not a radio transmitter so you can't use it to find the fish by satelite or a radio receiver. You can only get a reading from it by running a scanner over the fish. Then, every time the fish is caught and scanned, they'll know which fish it was, where it was tagged, when it was tagged, and any other information they recorded when the fish was tagged (e.g., length and weight). That way they can find out how long the fish live, where they go outside the breeding season, and lots of other information.
