Electrofishing is a survey technique that provides both a highly efficient and ethical way of sampling freshwater fish.
Electrofishing can be used in a variety of applications, including the assessment of fish community structure (species composition and abundance), targeted assessments for particular species, and aquatic salvage of native and/or exotic species.
Blue Earth Environmental provides in-house services in both backpack electrofishing and boat electrofishing. We operate Smith-Root electrofishing equipment that is regularly serviced and compliant with the Australian Code of Electrofishing Practice. Our personnel are Senior Electrofishing Operators, each with at least 15 years’ experience in the operation of electrofishing equipment and therefore have the necessary skills and experience to both safely and effectively undertake electrofishing works.
