Oregon RFID ORSR Single Antenna Reader

When you’re out in the field, you need easy-to-use technology. That’s where our ORSR Single Antenna Reader stands out. Using HDX technology, the reader is uncomplicated to set up – making an antenna can be as simple as placing a wire loop across a stream. For fishways or culvert antennas, you can use materials like wood, PVC pipe, and HDPE to anchor the wire loops. Contact our tech support team if you need assistance.

Our plug-and-play PIT tag readers automatically shut off when the battery gets low in order to avoid damage and go back on when the powers return. Plus, our single antenna reader does double duty as a reader for mobile operation that records the GNSS location with each detection.

Duluth Nets Custom Trammel Net

Trammel nets distinguish themselves from regular gill nets because instead of a single wall of netting, they have multiple walls. Instead of gilling fish, trammel nets capture fish after they swim through the large mesh and then entangle themselves in the smaller mesh, thus reducing the mortality rate of captured fish compared to regular gill nets. Trammel nets are more effective if you are targeting more than 1 species or size of species of fish. These nets come with a floating rope on to and a weighted rope on the bottom. Trammel nets can be floating, sinking, or drifting style nets, depending on how you are using them.
