TVA fish surveys now underway

Published On: Mar 19 2013 05:38:38 PM EDT   Updated On: Mar 19 2013 05:50:05 PM EDT

TVA's annual sport fish survey is now underway and fishing enthusiasts are invited to watch the process this spring.

The surveys are an annual event and last until May 9.

Fish in nine TVA reservoirs are collected, examined and evaluated by biologists. Once the process is complete, the fish are released.

Anyone interested in going with TVA biologists on the survey should call the TVA Environmental Information Center at 800-882-5263 to schedule a time. 

The Environmental Information Center operates from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. EDT, Monday-Friday. Space is limited.
