Innovative Fish-Friendly Systems


Whether you are producing fish in a public or a private hatchery, you understand the importance of taking care of each and every fish.

When you need to move fish to, from, or within a hatchery setting, the Whooshh system offers a proven solution that can be configured to most fish species and settings.

Reduced Fish Stress

In fact, recent studies comparing the Whooshh system to traditional methods of moving adult Chinook salmon found no mortalities or obvious signs of injury to the fish. In addition, immune responses and egg survival were similar in both methods.

Volitional (No Handling) or Assisted Entry

Recent success with volitional entry—where fish swim into the Whooshh system on their own—offers operators an attractive option of moving fish without handling or hand-feeding. 

In addition, we can design a system to crowd the fish into the entry point of the Whooshh system.

Customized and Mobile Solutions

The advantage of using the Whooshh system in a hatchery situation is that our systems can be configured in multiple ways, including length, height, and size of tube. 

Whooshh offers a range of solutions that can be customized to fit your specific operation, including mobile systems that can be moved from site to site.

Enhanced Features Available

Your Whooshh system can be integrated with specific add-ons that include count, sorting for size, species, or hatchery/wild.

If you’re looking for a gentle, efficient way to move fish within or from your facility, look no further than Whooshh.  Our fish-friendly system can be configured to your exact specifications and situation.
