Sport Fish Survey Schedule
2013 Spring Sport Fish Survey
TVA conducted the 2013 survey from March 12 through May 9.
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 2013 survey is below.
