Cool demo Wednesday afternoon in Farm Science Review’s Gwynne Conservation Area: electrofishing, a nonlethal way to sample fish populations, by three helpfully informative Ohio Division of Wildlife fisheries biologists.
Rock bass, longear sunfish, smallmouth bass, bluntnose minnows and two darter species, among others, were shocked with a DC current, briefly stunned, netted and then safely released in the Gwynne’s stretch of Deer Creek. The darters indicated good water quality and habitat.
Farm Science Review continues through 4 p.m. today.
