The salmon cannon has become a topic of conversation on Twitter as users marvel at the technology used to transport fish over a dam, according to thousands of tweets.

Entrepreneur Dr. Kash Sirinanda shared Whooshh Innovations’ salmon cannon, which is a system used to help native fish pass over dams in seconds rather than days, according to the video. His tweet garnered over 140,000 likes, more than 40,000 retweets, and hundreds of comments.

The video shows a man wearing a yellow raincoat and white gloves shoving salmon into the translucent tube. A shadow of the creature can be seen sliding quickly through the suspended tube, a reported 22 miles per hour. The fish arrive on the other side of the dam, dropping into the spawning grounds above, in seconds.

Twitter users are going crazy over the salmon cannon, replacing recent trending terms like “I purple you” and “30-50 feral hogs.”
