Local Company Uses Fish to Fight Terror

Audio

If there’s something fishy about the water supply in San Francisco, there’s a fish in the water that’s supposed to let people know. The freshwater bluegill is a species that’s particularly sensitive to toxins in water. And coupled with technology made by a Poway company, the fish is capable of warning cities of attempts to poison the water. Amazingly, the humble bluegill is a sentry in the war on terror.

Bill Lawler is co-founder of Intelligent Automation Corporation, based in Poway. His company has pioneered this new fish technology. Lawler discusses the potential for fish sentries.
