Trophy brown trout briskly and expertly transformed into robofish

From the Don’t Try This On Your Home Waters files…

To heck with just tagging the rear of a fish’s dorsal with some microscopic identification device – the folks from the Henry’s Fork Foundation actually perform full-blown surgery on a beautiful brown trout, inserting a transmitter into its belly behind the pelvic fins and running the antenna along its bottom and out behind the anal fins.

Brilliant work!
