Magnus,

You may want to have a look at:
http://www.fishdoc.co.uk/treatments/anaesthetics03.htm for a bit of an
overview of what is used/available in the UK.

Cheers, Bruce

Hello,
Looking at an old copy of Trout and Salmon Culture (California Fish
Bulletin Number 164  -1980) it identifies that the following have been
used in the past as fish anesthetics:

Creson, ether, carbon dioxide, chlorotone (Chlorobutanol), sodium
amytal, methyl pentynol, quinaldine, MS-222.

I have seen alcohol used in one situation, but I do not remember the
type.

Hi All,

We are doing a project on intertidal fish and want to knock them out so
that Chris can tag and measure them with minimal stress to the fish.
I've used clove oil in the past (cheap and easy to get hold of) but have
recently been told by a home office inspector that this went out with
the dinosaurs!

I've also been told that in the UK it is ok to use clove oil or
2-phexyethanol to kill fish but not to anaesthetise and bring round and
that we should  use MS222 (Tricaine methanesulfonate) instead.
 
Can anyone offer some advice/suggestions?

Cheers, Magnus
