Data Information

Experimental fisheries are generally conducted using seines, but the ZIP LSP team can also use several other capture methods, including trap nets, and electrofishing. Inventories are generally held between late April and early October, depending on flood levels.

The caught specimens are usually identified and measured on site and released. The sex and maturity stage are also determined whenever possible. However, if some fish require further analysis, they are kept in a solution of ethanol or formaldehyde for subsequent processing in the laboratory.
