Electrofishing (fish shocking, pond shocking, shocking up fish) uses an electrical current to capture fish in your pond or lake. The current temporarily stuns the fish and makes them available for capture with a dip net. The process is safe and harmless to the fish. We use a professionally designed system to create a zone of electrical current in front of our electrofishing boat and capture fish, placing them in a water tank with aeration. After capture, fish can be directly evaluated. This allows for collection of a larger sample, and a wider population sample than normal fishing would provide. Electrofishing provides a unique opportunity to gather a volume of information about your fish population, otherwise unavailable. This information allows our biologists to make professional recommendations to successfully grow your fishery, or to design a fishery plan for your pond or lake.
