Speaking with Sean, I understand that Australia used to be able to edit the Encounter ID so that they could have something meaningful like “FR10DEC27U” added so that we had an easy mechanism to search for sharks from a particular site ID on a particular date, and see whether they were hooked or unhooked. However, I am unable to edit the encounter IDs.
