Tagging Sea Turtles Around the World

We offer a few different styles of flipper tags for sea turtles, such as the #1005-49, #1005-681 Monel, and #681 Inconel. But we now offer an even larger, #691 Incoloy turtle tag. By tagging sea turtles with flipper tags, we can learn more about their migratory patterns, growth rates, survival, and reproductive output. The more information we have on these beautiful creatures, the more we can do to help conserve them for the future.

Multiple conservation organizations use our flipper tags for identification.

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) – “We use National Band and Tag Company’s Style 681 Inconel Tag. We’ve found these to have the greatest retention and lowest corrosion rates of the various flipper tags we’ve tried in the past.”

Seaturtle.org  – “The most commonly used Monel or Inconel flipper tags (Model Number 1005-681) are available from the National Band and Tag Company”
