The Northwest Environmental Training Center presents:

Backpack Electrofishing and Fish Handling Techniques
Effective Methods for Maximizing Fish Capture and Survival

May 20 - 22, 2008, 8:30 A.M. to 5 P.M. (3 Days)

Atlantis Casino Resort Spa
Cove Room
3800 South Virginia Street
Reno, Nevada 89502

Instructor: Dr. James B. Reynolds

Description: Electrofishing is an effective way to sample freshwater fish
populations. However, electrofishing may cause fish injury or mortality.
The proper balance between efficient sampling and minimal adverse effects
to fish is achieved through use of proper field techniques and
understanding the principles of electricity. This course is intended to
meet the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) training requirements
for electrofishing field staff under ESA permits for listed salmonids.
This course will provide a one-day overview of electrofishing principles
and practices and one day of field experience. On the first day,
participants will spend the day in the classroom learning electrofishing
principles and science. On the second day, participants will spend the day
in the field learning backpack electrofishing techniques at a nearby
stream. On the last day of the course, sampling and fish handling
techniques will be discussed; results of the field session will be
processed for standardized sampling; and essential concepts and techniques
will be reviewed, and final questions answered.
