Abstract:

This technical document details our teams research that was focused on harvesting electrical power from the Mudfish. The Mudfish research takes advantage of bacteria that live in the ocean bottom mud to generate electrical power. This document shows how the harvesting of electrical power was done and looks at possible applications of using electrical current attained from the Mudfish. Our research is based on naturally forming bacteria that grows in the mud. Anode electrodes are placed in the mud with the bacteria. The bacteria living in the mud expel electrons as part of their metabolism.
