Pipe fish (Salmon cannon, Salmon cannon, Fish tube) — a device with which you can move the fish to the spawning grounds. Video demonstration of the fishing pipe went viral on Twitter and turned into a meme.
7 Aug 2019 news Twitter account Cheddar posted a video on how to fish pipe. Some people just download their salmon in the gun, and they move from one point to another. It is necessary to transport fish in the Fraser river, which is the world’s largest salmon spawning. Self fish can’t get in there because of a landslide.
