Shocking fish ~ no rod or reel required!
Aquatic macroinvertebrates were sampled to evaluate water quality, and fish populations were surveyed using a backpack electrofishing unit. The results of these biological surveys will yield important baseline data, enabling Pocono Heritage Land Trust to fulfill an obligation to evaluate and monitor the environmental quality of this beautiful protected land. Note, shocking the fish does not harm them.
