Biological research - tagged stones. Tagged stones were regularly examined to determine the number of aquatic insects important as fish food. Records of insect abundance before and after the stream watershed has been sprayed with DDT enabled BCF biologists to evaluate the effect of pesticides on fish populations.
Alaska, Prince of Wales Island 1962 circa

Biological research - soft X-ray equipment. Through the use of soft x-ray equipment, biologists are able to determine the skeletal structure and patterns of development in extremely small fish specimens. This in turn helps to understand changes taking place in development and place fish in their proper taxonomic order.

5421 thumbnail picture
Chromosomes provide vital clues in studies of coregonid genetics that seek to explain the complex changes in whitefish and cisco stocks of the Great Lakes, and what these changes mean to the fishing industry.
Michigan, Ann Arbor
5422 thumbnail picture
A single parasite (Cyclochaeta) enlarged 150 diameters. The "mouth" may be seen entering one side of the parasite as well as the gear shaped "skeleton". Cyclochaeta is a complex single-celled parasite living on the skin and gills of fish and causing a severe irritation. Epidemics among small fish are frequently caused by this parasite.

Force-feeding of radioactive pellets to fingerling salmon. This was done to study the rates of metabolism of various trace elements introduced orally. Special diet pellets containing standardized amounts of radioisotopes of the trace elements to be studied are loaded into a special feeding tube, the fish anesthesized, and the pellet forced down by a plunger.
