The University awarded a contract for underwater fish transmitters & receivers to Amirix Systems, Incorporated, DBA Vemco, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, for $112,624.10.
Southern Illinois University intends to purchase 300 fish transmitters and 10 receivers. The transmitters and receivers must be compatible with the existing $580,000 worth of current equipment manufactured by Amirix Systems, Incorporated, which is being used in the research of Asian carp in the Midwest.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the compatibility of equipment, accessories, replacement parts, or service is a paramount consideration.
