The & # 39; salmon cannon & # 39; created by Whooshh Innovations helps the fish, which travel upstream to spawn, to pass troublesome places that would otherwise take days if they could be passed by in a matter of seconds.

The first cannon was sold in 2014, but a video montage was made and recently published by Cheddar has now put it on the map.

& # 39; It is rather outrageous how long it took before it caught on. & # 39; Whooshh Innovations CEO Vince Bryant told CNN.

The video shows workers who manually place salmon in the cannon using an old version of the design, but now the fish can swim all alone in the cannon, Bryant said.

They are then covered with water so that they can breathe during the fast journey. Traveling at an average speed of 22 miles per hour, the fish are back in the water where they belong in seconds.

A Twitter user with the mention & # 39; Aubrey Bear & # 39; said: & # 39; None of their fishing friends will believe they have done this. & # 39;

However, many people online expressed concerns about the fish after watching the video.

Mia Marie joked back: & # 39; IM now claustrophobic. & # 39; But according to Whooshh Industries CEO Vince Bryant, claustrophobia, which is the extreme or irrational fear of confined places, should not be a problem. As soon as the fish enters the tube that takes it to its final destination, the flexible material expands to its size

According to Bryant, claustrophobia, that is the extreme or irrational fear of confined places, should not be a problem.

As soon as the fish enters the tube that will carry it to its final destination, the flexible material expands to its size.

But people still remained skeptical. Verified Twitter user Alanah Pearce wrote: & # 39; Do the fish … want this? & # 39;

Twitter user Ann Cal said: “It was done in Oregon because of a land disaster and there was no way the fish would be able to get upstream. So it's their death or the tube. Think the fish would like the tube! & # 39;

Bryant said that any care for the fish is unfounded. & # 39; There is no stress for the fish, & # 39; he said. & # 39; It should be a comfortable ride for them. & # 39;

He noted that his system is a lot friendlier to the fish than other methods of getting them to their spawning places, such as traditional fish ladders where the salmon & # 39; sports & # 39; have to wind up to get upstream.

Byrant said an April study by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory discovered that salmon passing through the gun suffered fewer injuries than those who were able to travel in other ways.

Whooshh Industries has already sold 20 of its salmon cannon concepts, the longest of which spans 1,700 feet (that's more than a quarter of a mile), Bryant said.

Buyers have included government agencies in the US and Europe.
