This study will not affect boating or fishing areas. Receivers on poles will be placed in certain locations both in the river and bay, but they will be outside of navigational channels and fishing areas.
The study partners do request that people avoid the areas around the receiver poles, though. The equipment is sensitive and set in specific locations to ensure that the entire area is covered, so they don’t miss the movement of the fish.
Climbing on the poles or tampering with the recording equipment could result in the loss of useful information for the study.
