Blue Fish Radio: This innovative “salmon cannon” (and viral video sensation) may save migratory fish populations

Whooshh Innovations’ innovative Fish Passage Solution

Outdoor Canada is pleased to present Blue Fish Radio—podcasts about the future of fish and fishing in Canada. The program, produced and hosted by Lawrence Gunther, is dedicated to sharing first-hand angling knowledge, scientific discoveries and supporting local champions who protect and enhance their waters.

The lack of efficient and safe ways to move migratory fish around and over natural and built barriers has been the undoing of many ecosystems. Fish ladders were once hailed as the solution, but we now know they introduce their own unique set of problems. Enter Whooshh Innovations, which has developed some truly innovative ways to get fish around barriers to migration.


Whooshh’s technologies are proving effective at safely and efficiently moving desirable fish species past barriers—while re-routing less desirable species. How attention-grabbing is this technology? It’s been featured on Last Week Tonight with John Oliver and The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.

In this episode, producer/host Lawrence Gunther talks to Whooshh CEO Vincent Bryan about how this technology works and its potential to revitalize struggling fish populations. Learn more about Whooshh Innovations and see videos of its fish passage technology in action at
