The Brooklyn Creek Watershed Society has a new fish counting box courtesy of Kris Neilson, a volunteer fish counter. Our old box was falling apart and had many design deficiencies, Kris used his ingenuity and made a new box with the following features:
– marine plywood for the sides, bottom and top, stainless steel hardware and cedar skids to protect the bottom
– a screen that slides down over the pipe entrance and the entrance to the second chamber which prevents fish from swimming back up the pipe or going from chamber to chamber
– the bottom is flush with the screen which will make it much easier to net those frisky smolts.
I know our fish counting volunteers will really appreciate the new design for it will make the task much easier.
Many thanks to Kris Neilson for his hard work!
