Chinook

Does fish transport through either a 40' or an 1100' long and nearly 100' high Whooshh Fish Transport System significantly affect adult survival, reproduction or egg viability outcomes?

the conclusion

No. There was no significant difference in survival of Chinook salmon held up to four months after traveling through the Whooshh tube as compared to the control group - a typical trap and haul operation.
