Electrofishing

Texas Electrofishing

Electrofishing is a safe way of capturing fish and releasing them unharmed.  The electricity stuns the fish, and with involuntary muscle contractions they swim towards the current where they are netted. At Clearwater Consulting, we use state-of-the-art equipment that is clean, safe, and fish friendly. The survey data generates a fisheries report which helps landowners achieve their fisheries goal.

Electrofishing Boat

What is an Electrofishing Boat?

An Electrofishing boat is a specially designed vessel that discharges an electric current through electrodes and into the water. This temporarily stuns the fish and allows them to be easily captured.

Electrofishing for Lake Management

What’s the Purpose of  Electrofishing?

Electrofishing is an effective way to assess fish population in a lake or pond. While out on the boat, we keep track of how many fish we capture and observe. We’ll then compile a report based on our findings, which helps property owners know the condition of the wildlife in their lake or pond.  We also offer detailed recommendations tailored to your specific needs, and are always willing to provide our services to help you reach your goals.

Electrofishing for Lake Assessment
Is it Safe? Does it Hurt the Fish?
Electrofishing is completely safe and totally fish friendly! After being stunned by the current, the fish will return to normal and swim away.
