The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources restocks numerous lakes across Utah with fish using airplanes.
You might think it’s dangerous, but the process is actually much safer and efficient than carrying the fish by a land vehicle to the remote lakes across the state due to the oxygen levels in the water they’re transported in.
The news anchor has some cheesy commentary in this clip, but I was pretty fascinated by the state of Utah’s methods for restocking their lakes.
It makes me wonder who the guy was who first suggested it. I’m sure he got some questionable looks before he was able to explain it further.
You think this is the dream job of ex-military bomber pilots? Think about it. They would get to keep using their military-trained skills in a low risk and fun task that benefits the greater good of the environment and the state.
They also get to tell people they were a pilot in combat and followed that up with bombing fish in remote lakes.
That’s badass and you can’t tell me otherwise.
