Assessment of Potential Impact of Electromagnetic Fields from Undersea Cable on Migratory Fish Behavior
Lead PI: Dr. Rob Kavet, Electric Power Research Institute, Inc.
Start Year: 2013 | Duration: 3
Partners: University of California, Davis
The EPRI will measure, model, and map EMFs produced by an existing high voltage direct current underwater marine power cable in the San Francisco Bay. They will also utilize existing fish-tag data to analyze movement of a number of migratory species, and will evaluate if EMFs alter migration behavior. This project hopes to provide data on organismal response to EMFs to fields of regulatory concern.
