If you think about it, the life of a fish is pretty boring and really slow. Other animals at least have us for entertainment. Fishes just have other fishes who’re floating around at a sleep-inducing pace. And if we go to interact with them, they’ve to watch us try to move like them at an equally slow speed. However, the fish in Utah are living the high life. Quite literally.
The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources recently released a video of a plane flying over a lake and releasing a stream of water. But if you look closely, you can see that they’re dropping fish!
According to News 18, the mountains of Utah are popular tourist spots and people come to the lakes in them to fish. That’s why these lakes have to be restocked every year and the most efficient way to do so is by dropping them out of a plane.
I know what you might be thinking. Will they survive it? Well, actually, they will because these fishies are small and there’s a good chance that 90% of them will reach the lake alive. Studies say that transporting them through the roads is more harmful for the fish.

5. That’s probably how it went.
The fish, who were interviewed, found the slow ground journey to Utah stressful.
So they started dropping them from airplanes instead. https://t.co/3bizlrkuCn

So, if you’ve been making plans to skydive, you better hurry up because these fish are way ahead of you and are right up there with Tom Cruise.
