Sea Otter Tagging

Alexandria Troxell of Kodiak Wildsource, is a licensed Sea Otter Tagger at the Sun’aq Tribe of Kodiak available to assist Alaska Native sea otter hunters. Please call us for more information.

After the Hunt:

Tag your Harvest
Hunters must have their raw sea otter hides and skulls tagged by a U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service tagger within 30 days of harvest. If more than one sea otter is taken for tagging at the same time, hunters must match the skull with the correct hide. The tags must stay on the hide and skull for as long as practical during the handcrafting process.  Tagging is a management tool which gives biologists information about the animals and where they are being taken.  A pre-molar tooth may be removed from the skull and kept by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service as part of the tagging process.
