Sport Fish Survey Schedule
2014 Spring Sport Fish Survey
TVA will conduct the 2014 survey from March 11 through May 1.
The results of the survey, which employs a boat-mounted electrofishing technique, are used by state agencies to protect and improve sport fisheries. TVA biologists use electrofishing equipment to sample fish at selected locations. In that process an electric current is used to temporarily stun the fish so they float to the top. They’re collected with nets, counted, weighed, measured, and released unharmed.
The schedule for the 2014 survey is below.
