Why APPI:  Every fall, the Bonneville Fish Hatchery fills with adult Chinook and Coho salmon returning to their spawning grounds, which in this case is the hatchery, to complete their life cycle.  When the adults first arrive they swim into a crowder which is then lifted to a sorting station where they are separated according to species, sex, and condition.

Our Columbia AC electric strap hoists are used on the crowder gates and on the crowder elevators.  With approximately 30,000 Chinook and 50,000 Coho salmon being processed at the hatchery, these strap hoists are a key part of keeping the operation running smoothly.
