But Whooshh systems offer more than just passage.
Whooshh fish passage systems are evaluated on the survival, passage & migration time, abberant homing, disease transmission, and abnormal behavior of fish, so that they can be designed with optimal efficiency and care. Energy reserves not depleted with the use of Whooshh passage systems enable native species faster travel times upstream, to cooler water and spawning habitats.
Our FishL Recognition™ system has a modular entry system, with volitional entry and machine vision scanning. This allows us to gather data on the number of fish coming through, whether the fish came from a hatchery or is wild, which species it belongs to, any damage to the fish present, and the size of the fish (girth, width, & length.) The FishL Recognition™ system also takes data on the date/time of day, flow rate, water temperature, and other environmental indicators present.
Our systems combine machine learning with high speed imagery, allowing for real time automated decision and data enhancement.
Welcome to the future.
Combined with our scanning system, Whooshh systems are capable of identifying, segregating, and refusing passage to foreign and invasive species such as Shad, Small Mouth Bass, Wall Eye, Common Carp, and many others. Using automated sorting with sorting gates, our systems were designed to reduce the harm that invasive species are causing in natural habitats around the world.
