A lake survey is usually the first step in order to analyze the current condition of the lake and the fish populations. We do this by conducting an electrofishing survey. The electroshocker temporarily stuns the fish without harming them. Forage fish are categorized by size and quantity, and predators are weighed and measured. The recorded data is used to produce graph summaries of their condition.
After the electrofishing survey, you will receive a customized, detailed report with our recommendations, in order of importance, based on your goals and the date we’ve collected. These suggestions may include forage stocking, bass harvest, habitat enhancement, etc. Data is compared from each survey to the next to track progress in percentage growth – making a lake survey an important addition to your annual pond maintenance plan.
