Corrective to Aug. 24 story on smallmouth bass eradication in N.S.

In a story that moved on Aug. 24 about efforts to eradicate the smallmouth bass population in a Nova Scotia lake, The Canadian Press erroneously reported that electro-fishing involves fatally shocking fish. In fact, electro-fishing involves temporary stunning fish with a rod or specialized boat. Please replace existing online versions of the story, slugged NS-Fish-Eradication, with the corrected version that moved on the Atlantic wire at 14:47 ET.
