Lake Sturgeon

Will Lake Sturgeon safely transport through the Whooshh fish transport system?

the conclusion

Yes. There was no indication of external injury to study fish caused by passage through the Whooshh Fish Transport System. No mortalities occurred in the study: Whooshh and control transport groups. These results support the potential of the Whooshh system as a viable method for sturgeon passage upstream or downstream at dams.
