Migration at Hydroelectric Generating Stations
In 1998 and 1999, Biotactic Inc. worked in partnership with Beak
Consultants, ABI and the New York Power Authority to identify the timing of out
migration, swimming depth and migratory routes past the Moses-Saunders dam, for
American eels from Lake Ontario. We implanted ultrasonic transmitters into
approximately 60 eels and used a combination of stationary fixed receivers and
mobile tracking to determine movement for FERC relicensing.
