On behalf of a fish biologist who wishes to remain anonymous, we are publishing this blog. The biologist has an implanted heart pacemaker and faced concerns about participation in electrofishing operations. The text has been authored in first person and lightly edited by us with approval by the author. We believe that this factual investigation will provide useful information to employees and supervisors alike.
