Fish Shocking

  • Aired: 08/27/2010
  • 06:33
  • Rating: NR
We follow Fisheries biologist Chris Bickers as he conducts a survey on Little Grassy Lake using a technique called electrofishing, where fish are stunned, netted and placed in a holding tank where they recover. The fish are weighed and measured then returned to the water. The data is then compared and recommendations are made to improve the fishery, if needed.
