Hi!! Sorry if this is ignorant, but how does injecting dye into the fish help track population? Wouldn't the dye hurt the lil fishy?

no it’s fine! sorry I didn’t mention in the post but it’s just for a lab exercise on learning the method of mark and recapture. you catch and tag a certain number of fish than go back later and recatch the fish use statistics to estimate a population size. science! and no the fluorescence dye does not harm the fish promise
