Do you have a Tagging nr?

Hi Massimo - Thanks for the feedback and information.  Did you get the number on the tag?  This will help us track the tag and the tuna. 

Yes there can be infection on the tagging if the tag stick and needle are not kept in good condition.  I would like to understand more about this case.  Who gave you the report of the infection around the area of the punching?  You can email me and cc Axel at savethebluefintuna@gmail.com.  Thanks
