Plane drops fish – level 1

19-07-2021 07:00

Some US lakes are without fish. Authorities put fish there. They start doing it many years ago. Horses take fish to the lakes in the past. Today, fish travel by plane. It is faster and cheaper.

Utah authorities release a video. Men put fish onto a plane. The plane flies above a lake. The plane drops the fish into the water. The plane can drop 35,000 fish at one time.

The fish are small. They are special types of fish for fishing. Experts say that most fish survive the fall.

It is important that these lakes already have no fish. If there are fish, the new fish can hurt them.

Difficult words: release (to make something available for people to see it), drop (to let or make something fall), survive (to live after something dangerous or difficult happens).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
