For those who don't know what's Fish shell here's the home page
I would like to install it and make it default. But under their homepage when I click on download I'm redirected to the ppa page.
How can I install it?

It's pretty easy, first add the fish shell repository:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:fish-shell/release-3
Then just updated your repos:
sudo apt-get update
Now we can install it:
sudo apt-get install fish
One more command and we are done:
chsh -s /usr/bin/fish
This last command will switch your default shell to fish. To see the changes close your terminal and open it again. If you didn't notice any changes try logging out and logging in.
Fisher is a concurrent plugin manager for the fish shell, it supports Oh My Fish plugins, it's fast, and powerful.
To install it run:
curl -sL git.io/fisher | source && fisher install jorgebucaran/fisher
To install it run:
curl -L https://github.com/oh-my-fish/oh-my-fish/raw/master/bin/install | fish
A side note, when you do this your fish shell configs are overwritten, quoting the README file:
NOTE: The installation script renames your existing config.fish to config.orig, and replaces it with the default oh-my-fish config. If you have existing customizations to your fish config, you will need to manually include those customizations after the install.

If by any reason you need to get back to your old bash friend, just type
bash on your terminal, this will switch temporarily to bash, if you type
exit or close the tab/terminal it will switch back to fish.
pantheon-terminal supports its process completion notifications for
fish! To enable them, you need to put the following line either in /etc/fish/config.fish to enable them for the entire system or in ~/.config/fish/config.fish to enable them just for your user:
source /usr/share/pantheon-terminal/enable-fish-completion-notifications 2>/dev/null; or true

Add fish to the list of login shells in /etc/shells and make it your default shell.
