Class II Backpack Electrofishing Certification Course
Ontario Streams offers two electrofishing training courses per year, one in the spring and one in the fall. These courses are intended for students and professionals who will be involved in stream surveys and fisheries management.
The main focus is to ensure the safe use of the backpack electrofishing units. The course will cover: electrical theory, safety measures, and an in-field practical where you will demonstrate safe implementation in the field.
Instruction is provided by Doug Forder, a Class I certified instructor.
More information will be provided when the 2020 dates are decided. If you are interested in being notified about when the next electrofishing course will be held, please sign up for our mailing list
