Because similar fish live in different types of environments, it may be possible for these habitats to affect the structure and performance of the fish. So in conducting our experiment we went to Dugout Creek to capture fish using a net, and stunning them with a water electricity instrument. Once we captured the fish, we would obtain their measurements by placing them in a wet pan and measuring them with either a ruler or meter stick.
