Salmon Cannon Shoots Fish Upstream At 22MPH

August 14, 2014



This is a video about a 'salmon cannon' designed to launch salmon upstream in places where dams make swimming upstream to spawn impossible. The cannon can shoot the fish up to 22MPH, with a rate of 40 salmon per minute. Then they all get together and have a giant orgy before dying. Getting shot out of a cannon, boning, then dying? I could only be so lucky.

Keep going for the video news report.

Thanks to Pasty, who agrees big cities should use human cannons instead of buses and subways.

    i like the part where the guy has to run back and forth around the room trying not to drop one struggling fish at a time rather than make the hose 20 feet longer

    If someone told me there was a cannon that would shoot me into a pool of horny ladies..., well i'd be in my swimming trunks before they finished the first sentence.

    Only a matter of time before they develop a thirst for flight.

    What could possibly go wrong? I mean we keep seeing advances in unmanned drones. Imagine if the semi-autonomous robots got their cold steely hands on this technology.
