    Nicole suggests adding a number of user-defined project specific fields that could be used to collect data, but that would not be loaded into the PTAGIS database. They would be available through the data entry screen and for export from the tagging software.

    I strongly support Nicole's suggestion to add user-defined project specific fields and can think of many instances where this would be a valuable tool.  For instance, when trapping adult steelhead for a mark-recovery based population estimate, it is necessary to record the direction the fish is swimming (upstream or downstream).  While this is important to that specific researcher or project, it may not be necessary information for the general audience.
