Carp Management staff and AMC students undertake electrofishing training

In late September, permanent staff and volunteers with the Carp Management Program attended an internal training session on the efficient and safe use of electro-fishing. The course was run by Senior Fisheries Management Officer Rob Freeman, and consisted of a theory and practical session at the New Norfolk headquarters and the Plenty Salmon ponds, respectively. The staff were taught the science behind electrofishing operation, the safety precautions which need to be taken when operating the equipment, as well as the most efficient way of sampling to minimise the amount of stress to fish. The training covered both back pack electro-fishers and the electro-fishing boat. Electrofishing is an integral sampling tool in fisheries management, and are used for a range of applications. These include trout and native fish surveys, investigation of carp sightings in dams, to their primary role on Lake Sorell which is to herd schools of carp into gill nets.
