FishTick greatly improves the fish-counting procedure, giving you many advantages:

Less handling stress (After using FIshTick, USFWS found that handling delayed migration and reduced survival to the spawning grounds.)

Minimize holding time

Less labor intensive

Better sex identification

Better external tag detection

Permanent record for review

More accurate counts (fish often escape from live boxes)
