The Whoosh Innovations fish tube, aka the salmon cannon, recently made an encore appearance across social media thanks in large part to revisions of the soundtrack. Despite the clever mash-ups, the prospect of transporting fish through pneumatic tubes is another sign that we’ve screwed the pooch on salmon recovery.
For a couple of days, Twitter could not stop thinking about the fish tube or imagining what the voyage must be like for the cannoned salmon. Some have cast it as a jaunty adventure, as when set to the theme song from “DuckTales,” but others have conjured it as an aquatic trauma. As the writer and editor, Tyler Coates tweeted, “imagine if you were a fish and this shit happened to you.”
