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.
tbh i didn’t know that first gif was in slow motion at first and that fish was just casually swimming in the air
so basically we built a salmon cannon
THAT SECOND GIF THO
The salmon’s mouth is like “WAT IS HAPPENING OH MY GAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaahhhhhh” wooooosh!
