NMT produces five Coded Wire Tags formats:
- One and a half-length
The coding on the tags allows for either batch or individual identification. Batch codes have the same code repeated on each tag. They are used to identify a group of animals sharing one or more characteristics, and are most commonly used for stock assessment and evaluating hatchery rearing practices. Standard, one and a half length, half-length and agency-only formats have batch coding.
Sequential Coded Wire Tags are designed to identify individuals or small groups; each tag has a batch code and an individual code.
