Description

Surgical insertion of identification tags has been performed by research scientists and fish physiologists for decades; the first detailed description of electronic tag implantation surgery in fish was performed in 1975. Electronic tag implantation surgeries are not complex, however the conditions under which the surgery is performed are more challenging out in the field compared to in a sterile surgical suite. Additionally, there is minimal opportunity for post-release monitoring and intervention in such field surgery cases and the potential for adverse effects to introduce flaws in the data puts a premium on ensuring the survival of patients not only after surgery, but for the many months after reflecting the long battery life of the tag which can sometimes be up to 17 months!. Veterinarians have core competencies in surgery, anaesthesia, wound healing, suture materials/surgical equipment and have access to medications that can aid in maximising patient survival. This presentaiton will explain my surgical protocol for the insertion of acoustic tags into the peritoneal cavity of native catfish for a government agency comparing movement patterns of freshwater cobbler against environmental variables (hydrology, water quality and habitat characteristics) to inform environmental water planning.

Objectives

Objectives
1. Understand the benefits of seeking Veterinary advice to plan and perform coelomic surgery on aquatic animals.
2. Recognise the limitations of performing field surgery and know how to use aseptic techniques to achieve 100% survival after surgery/recovery.
3. Understand how to chose appropriate anaesthetic agents, analgesics, antibiotics, emergency drugs and suture material for patients that will not be able to be re-captured after surgery.
4. Know how to address your staff/helpers (non-ve
