Not all the videos coming up online are funny, and some could mean for significant development as well.

And the video showing the shooting process quickly went viral. It is making people crazy as they create hilarious memes thinking it to be a summer joy ride. But on a serious note, it is more than a meme. Let us explain to you why. Fish With Pigeon Head Found in China, Watch Video of The Weird Looking Mutant Species!

But behind this meme, there is a real environmental solution that you must know. As explained by Vox, the fish tube is a simple air-filled tube which has been created to be fish-friendly. To keep the fish totally breathing, the machine comes equipped with water misters in every five feet. And within a few seconds, they slash land on the other side of a dam all safe.

Whooshh Innovations CEO Vince Bryant in regards if the journey is painful to the salmons, said, “There's no stress for the fish. It should be a comfortable ride for them,” as quoted by CNN. “People think it's crazy. This is the real deal, guys. This is not some internet video thing,” he added further. The machine helps to move at least 50,000 fish in every 24 hours, and it is an efficient way to shift them to the upper reaches of rivers where they can lay their eggs.
