|Course Title||Rotenone and Antimycin Use in Fish Management
TUITION FEES: Information is available at the NCTC website.
Note: Tuition is not applicable to FWS, BLM and NPS employees.
This four and one-half day training provides a foundation for the planning and execution of a fish sampling/control/eradication project using the fish management chemicals rotenone and antimycin.
- product chemistry & toxicology;
- application, monitoring, & neutralization techniques;
- applicator safety;
- integration with fisheries management or conservation plans;
- species sensitivities;
- pre- & post-project monitoring;
- public involvement & education;
- environmental laws;
- project planning;
- environmental effects analysis;
- project implementation & management; and
- crisis management strategies.
Application techniques are practiced in hands-on laboratory and field exercises. Successful completion of a final exam will give the participant a certificate of completion.
- Develop strategies for fish removal that reflect sensitivities of target species, characteristics of the piscicides, and important environmental conditions;
- Explain piscicide label contents and requirements;
- Safely execute a rotenone or antimycin treatment;
- Characterize effects of piscicides on target and non-target organisms;
- Identify and describe key environmental laws, regulations, and processes/procedures to ensure compliance with ESA, FIFRA, NEPA, and individual state regulations;
- Develop public involvement, application, neutralization, monitoring, and safety plans; and
- Implement application and neutralization techniques for flowing and standing waters that avoid or minimize environmental impacts.
The course is designed for fish biologists who must manage or supervise the planning and execution of a fish sampling/control/eradication project using rotenone or antimycin.
