—The effects of AC and pulsed DC (PDC) electroshock on mortality and injury (vertebral damage and hemorrhage) of spotfin chub Cyprinella monacha, a threatened minnow, were evaluated in a laboratory experiment. Groups of 18–20 captive-reared fish were either designated as a control or exposed for 3 s to one of five electrical treatments (60-Hz AC at a peak-to-peak voltage gradient of 1.7, 2.5, or 3.3 V/cm or 60-Hz PDC at a peak voltage gradient of 2.5 or 5.0 V/cm). Immobilization, which renders… CONTINUE READING
