Ka-Pow: Watch These Fish Cannons Shoot Salmon Safely Over Dams
Salmon have serious swimming skills—some travel thousands of miles to return to their original homes to breed. But even though they can jump as high as 12 feet in the air, they can’t manage to get over massive concrete dams that we have built to block their journeys back to their homes. Now one new idea could give them a boost. The plan involves whisking the fish through a long vacuum tube at speeds up to 22 miles per hour and then shooting them out the other end like a cannon.
fuck we’ve made this planet weird
fuck yeah salmon cannons
I expect someone to make a weapon out of this someday. Just wait.
i see ppl in the tags making fun of this and saying how unnecessary it is but until you have stood next to a riiver and heard frustrated salmon scream like banshees and then die before making it back to their nesting river dont knock the salmon cannon
Okay, but we can admire how awesome this is *and* suggest it as a weapon for an episode in the next season of Castle, right?
