RECORD DISTANCE TRAVELED

Last year our partner program, Westag in Western Australia got a remarkable recapture. A Samsonfish tagged off Rottnest Island west of Perth in Jan 2006 was recaptured not far from Port Lincoln in South Australia. It had been out for 7.25 years and was recaptured 2,160km from where tagged. That is double to furthest distance we have for a fish in the Suntag program.
