Electrofishing Theory and Practice

Project Description

Electrofishing is a common non-lethal fish sampling technique for research and management in freshwaters. Despite steady progress in areas of equipment development and fish welfare, many basic questions remain unanswered. For example, what factors affect differences among species and sizes of fish in their electrical thresholds for capture? Also, what technological improvements can be made to electrofishing equipment that will, based on neuro-physiological science, improve capture efficiency with minimal fish trauma? The Principal Investigator, after 30+ years of study, continues to pursue these questions in retirement.
