Lord Faraday presents a big step forward in small boat design for Australian river and wetland electrofishing operations. So many great features have been packed on board, while still providing ample space for other gear and a 2- or 3-person crew. Once adjustments to the trailer are complete, I think one would be hard-pressed to find a slicker unit on Australia’s waterways (mind you, I’m slightly biased).

“Electrofishing is a valuable tool for fishery management and research, but when resultant injuries to fish are a problem and cannot be adequately reduced, we must abandon or severely limit its use and seek less harmful alternatives. This is our ethical responsibility to the fish, the populace we serve, and ourselves.” – Darrel Snyder.
