The electrical resistivity meter in fishery investigations
Special Scientific Report - Fisheries 287
- Robert E. Lennon
A portable resistivity (or conductivity) meter is easily used in fishery investigations to obtain rapid and precise measurements of the electrical resistance (or conductance) of waters. These measurements can be used to estimate the total dissolved solids content of waters, to facilitate the selection of appropriate gear for efficient electrofishing, and to determine the velocity, stretch-out, dilution, and effective range of a solute over miles of a stream in conjunction with chemical reclamation operations. Applications of resistivity measurements on Appalachian streams are discussed.
