DIY Riverwatcher

We’re always looking for better ways to showcase the easy setup and use of the VAKI Riverwatcher fish counter. We’ve had great success over our 8 years of using it, and get asked a lot of questions about installation and how it works. So, it only made sense to put our technicians to the task of fabricating a portable display in the FABLAB to demo it.

Because the system is made up of 4 key components, they’re easy to put together and easily adaptable to various applications, such as resistance board weirs, fish traps, fish ladders, fykes, flumes and many others. Our own Scott Wucherer demonstrates how the system works.
