Tote Barge

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.

Durable Design

The SR-7 Tote Barge is a minimum draft, flat-bottomed barge designed to carry an electrofisher. Generator and frame are shock-mounted and secured in position with rubber straps. One-piece plastic construction allows easy cleaning and provides a strong platform to handle engine vibrations. Included is a bracket for holding three standard sized 5 gallon buckets, which can be used for either specimen collection and sorting, or for additional gear. 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. The flat-bottom design supports 80 pounds per inch of draft.
