Hi Marta. this is more of species monitoring. It is one of the components for River assessment research project. After getting the measurements and identifying it, we release it.

Nice, Irish! Can you explain us whether these animals are caught for tagging, species monitoring etc? Are you in an organization to help animals in the wild? (just curious :-)

Thanks guys..:)
