Fall Chinook

Do fall Chinook salmon traveling through a 40' or a 250' Whooshh fish transport system incur epithelial injury?

the conclusion

No. Fish passing through the Whooshh tube incur no epithelial damage as indices of epithelial injury suggest that no differences could be distinguished between Whooshh transported, trap and haul transported and control-net handled fish.
