Assist with fish sampling in multiple states using a variety of gears (electrofishing, gill nets, fyke nets, seining etc.), fish tagging and tracking, and habitat data/water quality collection efforts in the field (rivers and reservoirs). Fish sampling will target invasive carp (Bighead and Silver Carp) to determine population demographics and spatial/temporal distribution of them in the lower Red River basin. Additionally, all other fishes encountered will recorded for native fish data; Fisheries sampling includes collecting fish data (i.e., species, length/weight), prepare otoliths and other aging structures for processing and assist with determining estimated age; take fin clips, and remove other structures and preserve for the PI; enter field and laboratory data; provide summary tables and assist with report writing; maintain field equipment such as electrofishing boats, boat motors, trailers, and trucks; and perform other duties as assigned.
