Electrofishing

Definition (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electrofishing)

Electrofishing uses electricity to stun fish before they are caught. Electrofishing is a common scientific survey method used to sample fish populations to determine abundance, density, and species composition. When performed correctly, electrofishing results in no permanent harm to fish, which return to their natural state in as little as two minutes after being stunned. (Wikipedia)
