The largest fish in Dolan and Miranda's study were still quite small.
This experiment tested larger fish up to 80cm long, where the salt water conducts electricity much more easily.
As you mention, for a given electrofishing setup, larger fish are usually more affected than smaller ones., biologists Chad Dolan and Steve Miranda modeled the way electric currents stun fish of different sizes, but caution that "no adequate conceptual system exists to explain the effects of size on electroshock thresholds from the perspective of electric fields." None of these studies dealt with animals anywhere near the size of whales.I came up with this: The distance between y = x and the asymptote is about 10 years, meaning a 40 year old can date a 33 year old, but a 50 year old can only date a 40 year old. I mean, I agree that the forumla is flawed, but I disagree on where the flaws start.I think the flaws start well out of what normal human lifespan is.. If someone who's 110 wants to date someone who's 62, I'm sure as fuck not going to stop them.The birds would usually take flight when the equipment turned on, although if it was cold enough, they'd just sluggishly paddle away.So electrofishing equipment probably can't help you catch blue whales.Here, at last, is a single, definitive standard: [[table of various kinds of kilobytes SYMBOL | NAME | SIZE | NOTES k B | Kilobyte | 1024 bytes OR 1000 bytes | 1000 bytes during leap years, 1024 otherwise KB | Kelly-Bootle standard unit | 1012 bytes | compromise between 10 bytes Ki B | Imaginary kilobyte | 1024 sqrt(-1) bytes | used in quantum computing kb | Intel kilobyte | 1023.937528 bytes | calculated on Pentium F.

There are various electrofishing setups, but they all operate on the same general principle: An electric current flows through the water, and also through any fish that happen to be in the water.The electric current, through a few different physical effects, draws the fish toward one of the electrodes and/or stuns them.For a long time, people didn't really notice that electrofishing injured fish at all.For the most part, stunned fish seemed to be fine after a few minutes.]]
