xavier Below points of tattooing for classification J.C. TANZILLI & Professor CAILLERE.
The marking of bleue color is carried out by injection under the skin on some of the zones numbered (the mark is made up of several small points).
There are series with 2,3,4... zones tattooed.
If you capture a catfish with these marks of tattooing, it acts of a specimen test.
You can raise the numbers of the zones tattooed as well as the length (longueur), the weight (poids), the date (date) and the place of capture (lieu), and make us follow them.
We will transmit this information to J.C.TANZILLI.

xavier Spanish carps in Mequinenza with Mehdi.
xavier It is not the first time that this spanish silure of the Segre river becomes acquainted with a fisherman, this ring is the proof of it.
Personally I prefer the tattooing method of Jean Claude Tanzilli.
Tattooing is more scientist and useful and it don't harm the fish.
Surely this silure would not contradict me.
