This report summarizes the information and discussion presented during a week-long conference on electrofishing. It is intended to provide readers with a basic and applicable understanding of the theory, technical issues and science of electrofishing as they are currently viewed by experts in the field. Controversial areas and unresolved issues are addressed. Viewpoints are presented from the perspective of the two dominant manufacturers of electrofishing equipment in the United States, Coffelt, Inc. and Smith-Root, Inc. This report addresses two key elements in the electrofishing arena: a perspective of the relative effects of electrofishing as compared with other fish assessment techniques, and guidance on what types of important auxiliary information should be reported along with the results of electrofishing efforts. A list of scientific references cited is provided, as well as a supplemental list of references for the serious student of electrofishing.
