If you work in streams that are wadeable but still too large for backpack electrofishers, the tote barge is your solution. This small barge can be easily maneuvered through a stream by wading biologists, yet includes a fully adjustable electrofisher, up to three anode poles, and livewell for fish transport.
The SR-7 features a one-piece plastic hull design with formed bottom ridges provides a stable platform to hold your electrofisher and generator. A shock-absorbing generator mounting plate provides secure installation of the generator and engine. Mounting brackets specific for your electrofisher are pre-mounted inside the barge along with the junction box required to safely connect your anode poles and cathode. Stainless steel cathode plates are mounted on the hull bottom and pre-wired to the junction box. The Tote Barge also includes a removable insulated plastic holding tank with approximately 18 gallons of holding capacity.
An insulated push-handle is provided across the stern for maneuvering the barge and includes a safety switch where output power is automatically shut off when one or both handles are released.
