Salmon Cannon is a Misdirection

The the 'salmon cannon' seems to be growing in popularity among fans of anadromous fish and those who are getting increasing frustrated with blocked upstream spawning passage by dams. Have a look at the history of this BS technology and why it is deployed. My comments are under the name Leighton on the vid site.

While I agree we should take down most of the dams, I am a big fan of the cannon. I think it should be used where natural barriers are as well. Salmon are great for the ecosystem.

I like the auger style "escalator" they are using on the Cedar river. I have no idea if it is efficient but the real bottom line is getting the smolt down river when it is time for their migration. Salmo G has covered this in previous posts. And thank-you Steve for shedding some light on this part of things.
