Abstract High rates of spinal injury from electrofishing have been reported for rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss, but little is known about the fate and performance of injured fish. [...] Key Method We electroshocked 866 wild rainbow trout from the Gallatin River, Montana, using one of three different DC pulse shapes (smooth, half pulse, and full pulse), X-rayed the fish to determine degree of spinal injury, and compared short-term (100-d) growth and long-term (335-d) growth and survival after transplanting…Expand
