Fetching Data With DEC Fisheries

We were out this morning helping the DEC fisheries team retrieve data from their hydrophone buoy just south of Hastings. The hydrophone tracks tagged Atlantic Sturgeon and Shad as they enter and exit the River.

If you don’t know where the fish are you can’t protect them!
