Fish and Game Officer explains Electric Fishing.

Today there was an event at a local stream held by Fish and Game. They are the organisation that manages New Zealand's freshwater fishing and water fowl resources. Two small brown trout and a few bullies were zapped and netted. There were a few mayflies about and this Dobson fly lavae, which I have never seen before. The event attracted about 15 people.
