MMCP Collaboration (MMCP) is a project supported by the Joint State Governments and the Murray-Darling Basin Authority to generate and adopt freshwater ecological knowledge through collaboration, to maintain research capability and contribute supporting science to underpin the Basin-Wide Watering Strategy.

The Fish movement theme is one of five themes that make up MMCP. This project aimed to increase the capacity of training lock staff to tag fish with automated transponders, to increase available data on fish movement.


This document outlines the equipment, procedures and handling of data for lock staff to undertake PIT tagging fish after initial training.
