This is not something you hear about every day. Thousands of fish dropped from a plane. And it was all to restock a Utah lake. Hallelujah, it’s raining fish! A new video from the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources shows a plane dropping thousands of fish into a lake. The move is to replenish waterways located in higher locations. A reported 35 thousand fish can be carried by a single plane.
The agency wrote on the Youtube video of the event, “We used to load fish into milk cans and we needed horses to get us into these remote areas. The aerial method of the stocking is much quicker and less stressful for the fish.”
