Corps' Walla Walla District awards fish protection and research contract

Chinook Salmon

Radio Frequency Identification Solutions SL has been awarded a US$842,600 contract from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for its Northwestern Division's Anadromous Fish Evaluation Program.

The Corps' Walla Walla District most recently solicited bids for the contract in April, which will see Radio Frequency Identification Solutions SL provide large quantities of passive integrated transponder (PIT) tags.

The Corps said it plans to award an indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity contract for large numbers of PIT tags in a short time to accommodate timing of migrating juvenile salmonoids and research activities.

In March, the National Marine Fisheries Service took bids to supply 50,000 PIT tags for use in the federal Columbia River Basin hydropower system. Passive integrated transponder transmitters have been used extensively to track fish as they travel past radio receivers in hydroelectric projects on the mainstem Columbia River.
