Project Title: Electrofishing
It is very difficult to find out how much electricity is needed to shock a fish without killing it or not shocking it enough to stun it. By using the Type VII POW Backpack Electrofisher we will make a C++ Program to show the amount of electricity needed to shock the fish with the correct amount of the electricity. If you use too much or too little electricity, poor electrofishing will result. The amount of electricity needed depends on the conductivity of the water, the size and conductivity of the fish, the water temperature, and the conductivity of the stream or lake bed. By making a computer program when the user inputs this information the computer will output the amount of electricity needed. This program will make it much easier to find the correct amount of electricity.
