So, do the fish just willingly swim into this cannon? How fast does it go? Can I ride in it?

The people who's third question when they hear "fish cannon" is "Can I ride in it?" really make the world a much more interesting place. Bravo.


Human beings are not hydrodynamically correct for the system used, which depends on the fish being shaped like a fish.

around 5 metres to 10 metres per second (11 mph to 22 mph)
