On November 23, 2005 we deployed three submersible receivers in Black Lake. The receivers will document the migratory and distribution patterns of the 40 fingerlings we released with internal telemetry tags on December 15, 2005. The tags are programmed to turn on for two days and off for two days to retain battery life. We will download receiver data into a laptop computer, clear the memory in the receiver and reposition the receivers in the lake. We will update you with information as it becomes available.
