May 2015 - July 2015

Using blood samples and radio telemetry, we examined the physical, physiological, and short-term movement patterns of Golden Dorado (Salminus brasiliensis) post catch-and-release in Salta Province, Argentina. Surveys were distributed to recreational anglers to better inform future management plans for the emerging recreational fishery. 

Experience includes: radio telemetry transmitter attachment, immediate and short-term radio telemetry tracking, implementing reflex action mortality predictors, field blood sampling and testing, remote river navigation with oar raft, stakeholder engagement
