While tagging procedures are described in details the capture and handling of experimental fish prior to tagging is not given the same attention in most papers. However, traumas that originate from the capture and handling process may for a varying penid of time iradluenca: the post-release behaviour of the animals studied with Smart-or other electronic tags introducing errors when interpreting the data collected. With emphasis on Atlantic species, the paper gives an overview of capture and handling methods reported in electronic tagging experiments, and where relevant, references are made also to methods used to capture and transport fish for aquarium or other live holding purposes. The advantages and disadvantages of different handling methods are discussed, and a promising new &awl-method for c individuals of delicate species is summarised.
