Electro-fishing is a safe method to catch fish without causing long-term injuries and can be used when a pond or lake is being renovated and the need for draining is required or for targeted surveying and population control measures.  It involves passing a current through the water stunning the fish, of which are then safely moved to an aerated facility for either removal, grading or temporary storage.  The effectiveness of electro-fishing depend on various environmental factors and on the size and species of the fish.
