Episode 27: Whitehorse Fish Ladder

My Yukon Life host Jennifer Hawks takes listeners to the Whitehorse Fish Ladder—the longest wooden fish ladder in the world. It’s also one of the oldest. Without it, because of the hydro dam that’s in place, migrating salmon wouldn’t be able to swim upstream to spawn. As of August 31st this year, 1,519 salmon were counted going through the ladder. A lot of people have passed through as well– the Fishway has been rated the number one visitor attraction in Whitehorse.
