The US Geological Survey (USGS), Upper Midwest Environmental Science Center has a potential need for a backpack electrofishing unit that has the ability to allow the user to capture sea lamprey ammocoetes. The backpack electrofishing unit shall have a fully adjustable rate control that is easily and quickly switched from slow to fast pulse. The very specific bursted pulse train is the most effective at drawing ammocoetes from their burrows. The switching shall be done very quickly in order to ensure successful capture of the ammocoetes as they try to swim away to avoid capture. The unit shall have two sets of fully adjustable rate outputs controlled by two switches on the anode pole. Depressing the lower anode switch on the anode pole activates the slower rate and depressing the upper switch activates the faster rate.
