In California, some impressionable, young Chinook Salmon in the Sacramento river are heading down the wrong path. A path leading towards death and destruction. A path otherwise known as the San Francisco Bay. To get these disenfranchised fish on the right track, the Department of Water Resources are installing an underwater “bubble barrier,” complete with loud acoustic noises and a strobe lights. That shit sounds like a rave to me.
The barrier will be put in place until mid-May, and 1500 salmon will be tracked to test the effectiveness of the barrier. Similar solutions in the past have worked in other Central California rivers. [CBS Sacramento]
