Interesting tope recapture

Thanks to a commercial skipper and his crew we have just received notice of an interesting recapture.

A tope (7929), originally tagged last July off the Mull of Galloway, was recaptured off the Outer Hebrides – it’s not very often a tagged tope is recaptured well North of its original tagging location.

After noting the tag number, the fish was released with the tag intact.
