A Day on the Job (Electrofishing)
Watch the Flint River Ecology Study at work! Learn more at: flintriverecostudy.com
The Flint River Ecology Study spends half of the workday electrofishing for nearly 2 hours. When the data is gathered on each fish, all are released back into the river in the location they were retrieved from. No fish are harmed during any steps of the study, including electrofishing.
Electrofishing is a common technique used by fisheries biologists to sample fish populations in bodies of freshwater. As the name implies, electrofishing uses electricity to catch fish. https://seagrant.sunysb.edu/ifish…/pdfs/Newsletter-Sum07.pdf
