Tony Loveless continues to work with us and lead Chips4Fish. Orders and training requests from fisheries should go directly to Tony in the first instance. We are always available to back him up.
Many fisheries and aquaria choose to microchip their fish for security and stock management.
Strictly there are no legal requirements for anyone implanting microchips in fish to receive any training, but as some knowledge is required in order to implant microchips in fish safely, to avoid damage or welfare concerns we strongly recommend that training be carried out.
Tony has been offering training in fish implantation for many years, and his experience and knowledge means that Chips4Fish provides high quality training. Even EA biologists will benefit from this training.
If public aquaria are looking for microchips or specialist long-handled/waterproof scanners then please contact our office directly on 01962 813 554.
Our Trovan microchips are used by zoos worldwide for their unparalled build quality and reliability.
Chips4Fish also works closely with Petlog the national dog and cat microchip database. Petlog have added fish to their database so this has given fish a national database. Indeed an international database coverage as Petlog themselves share information with www.petmax.com who have international coverage!
