Is it safe ... - 2012/07/18 06:25 Have you heard about the Bio Weapons Program the US was supposedly involved in on Catalina Island at the Marine Biology Institute back in the early 80's before it became an non-profit educational facility.

They were experimenting with cross species mitigation, 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 over 60 mph. This shark is also a very good jumper and can leap heights of 30 feet out of the water.

Any of certain 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 long and weigh about 1,000 lbs.

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.

There are cases when an angry Mako jumped into a boat!"

Can you imagine 1,000 lbs of teeth coming at you at over 60 MPG from the air ... aaagh!

"Exocoetidae is a family of marine fish in the order Beloniformes of class Actinopterygii. Fish of this family are known as flying fish. There are about sixty-four species grouped in seven to nine genera. Flying fish can make powerful, self-propelled leaps out of water into air, where their long, wing-like fins enable them to glide for considerable distances above the water's surface. This uncommon ability is a natural defense mechanism to evade predators."

"Flying fish live in all of the oceans, particularly in tropical and warm subtropical waters. Their most striking feature is their pectoral fins,which are unusually large, and enable the fish to hide and escape from predators by leaping out of the water and flying through air a few feet above the water's surface. Their flights are typically around 50 meters (160 ft).

In May 2008, a Japanese television crew (NHK) filmed a flying fish (dubbed "Icarfish") off the coast of Yakushima Island, Japan. The creature spent 45 seconds in flight. Flying fish can use updrafts at the leading edge of waves to cover distances of at least 400 m (1,300 ft). They can travel at speeds of more than 70 kilometres per hour (43 mph). Maximum altitude is 6 m (20 ft) above the surface of the sea. Some accounts have them landing on ships' decks."
