A 2004 survey of researchers actively using surgery for fish telemetry deployment indicated that they had learned transmitter implantation techniques primarily from a combination of observation, various literature sources, and mentors. Less than 10% of respondents had received professional instruction from an educator or veterinarian through an academic or professional development course. Furthermore, although the majority of respondents reported that surgical experience was important to ensuring a successful outcome, 65% reported that they had little practice (performing surgery on only 1 10 individuals) before participating in their first telemetry study. Thirteen percent of respondents admitted that they had performed implantation surgeries with no prior practice.
