Our Story
Fishheart for the
win-win-win

Fishheart is a hydraulic fishway system designed to revive migratory fish stocks in altered bodies of water.

With the help of our technological innovation, we’re aiming for a win-win-win situation: we provide migratory fish access to their natural spawning grounds, restore biodiversity and combat climate change, as well as save water and cut costs for hydropower plants.

Fishheart adapts to different environments and repositions quickly for best attraction flows. Together with the Ecological Egg Box and Stream Restoration, Fishheart offers a comprehensive solution to the migratory fish dilemma.

We believe in cooperation, and transparency is key in all our operations. Fishheart is an independent, eco-focused company looking to solve a global issue with local partners.

Innovative

Problem-solving and constant innovation are an essential part of Fishheart’s open and interdisciplinary operations.

We believe that with cooperation and new technology we can build a sustainable model of the future.

We want to achieve professional credibility with our customers and in public discourse. We voice our strengths and admit our weaknesses.

We communicate actively and openly Fishheart research and test results, operators and partners, as well as product development.
