Salmon Cannon

If you have not been watching John Oliver's Last Week with John Oliver you should start. The reporting is very in depth and though delivered with ample humor is thought provoking. This clip is a bit of shout out to  a Washington State company Whooshh that has been developing a variety of creative solutions to work in Washington State. 

Managing salmon is a big job and the salmon cannon may reduce the work load, costs and be easier on fish. Salmon are transported around the lower the falls at Whatcom Creek via hand capture, wheel barrow and pipe.

In Canada we used to have the Chicken Cannon. But we mostly used it to blast politicians. (In effigy.) Looks like this salmon cannon is a gentler weapon.
