Project Summary

We propose to construct, install, and commission a programmable, full width, 3-axis data carriage at the FishPass Project located on the Boardman River, Traverse City, MI (http://www.glfc.org/fishpass.php).  The carriage will facilitate rapid and consistent collection of environmental data in support of selective fish passage research coordinated by the FishPass Advisory Board.  The carriage will be custom fabricated and outfitted with numerous environmental (e.g., velocity, temperature, dissolved oxygen, pH) and fish movement (e.g., sonar, telemetry) sensors.
