Nine-year old milkfish (3.8 kg., average body weight) were individually marked with Visible Implant (VI) tags to monitor their reproductive performance following hormonal induction. All tags were retained after one year; only 5 out of 64 tags were not readable due to improper implantation. The advantages of using VI tags include: less tagging time (less than one minute), high retention rate, longer retention, infection-free, and easily readable.
