Electro Fishing


Electro fishing is a popular method used to estimate fish abundance and diversity in a river. It is often used to catch fish from a predetermined section of a river. The section is fished using an electro fishing probe, which produce an electrical current, stunning the fish for a few seconds, and they can be easily retrieved with dip net. The fish are usually held in a bucket where they are identified, counted and subject to other procedures if requested.
