This document provides a food safety risk assessment for the proposed use of passive integrated transponder (PIT) tags in a SNA 1 tagging programme. The Ministry for Primary Industries has proposed carrying out a tagging programme to improve the stock assessment for the SNA 1 stock. The last tagging pro-gramme in SNA 1 (which used coded wire tags rather than PIT tags) dates from 1994, and recent trends in biomass have been estimated from catch per unit effort indices.
