“The fish fly right through without so much as a scratch. Also, you won’t have to divert water, as you do in a ladder system. Out here, the economy is all about agriculture, and water is gold. That’s what makes Whooshh such a great concept.”
— Mark Johnston, Research Scientist Yakama Nation Fisheries
“The process is much easier on fish than the old method that involved totes and forklifts and a lot more time.”
— Eric Kinne, Washington Dept of Fisheries and Wildlife, Hatchery Reform Coordinator
“This system was highly effective in rapidly moving large salmon through a 12-m-long tube. Moving large fish without water offers a huge advantage, particularly in recirculating systems, because typical 30-cm-diameter fish pumps can require a flow of more than 4,000 L/minute to move fish.”
— Dr. Steve Summerfelt, The Conservation Fund Freshwater Institute
“It’s definitely much more efficient. It’s less handling for the fish, too.”
