Flying fish? - 2014/03/05 02:07Reading about the supposed experiments over on Catalina Island at the Marine Biology Institute back in the early 80's before it became an non-profit educational facility.
Anyway the story goes they were working with mixing the DNA from a Flying Fish with that of a Maco shark to weaponise the fish.
"The maco shark is one of the fastest fish in the water and for a short distance can reach up to 60 mph. This shark is also a very good jumper and reach heights of 6 meters out of the water.
Any of certain potentially dangerous sharks (genus Isurus) in the mackerel shark family (Isuridae). Two species are generally recognized: the Atlantic I. oxyrinchus and the Indo-Pacific I. glaucus.
Makos range throughout tropical and temperate seas. Blue-gray, with a white belly, they are about 13 ft (4 m) long and weigh about 1,000 lbs (450 kg).
They prey on fishes such as herring, mackerel, and swordfish. Outstanding game fish, they are prized for their fighting qualities and their spectacular repeated leaps out of the water."
Is it safe ....
