Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Google Earth, what is that in the water?


    58°12'51.79"N 6°52'36.91"W
     
  2. it is a fish farm... The circles are large circular floating cages for Salmon.
     
  3. Thanks.
     
  4. de nada mate... it is rare that I get to use my finely honed fish biologist skills... :D
     
  5. I suspected that it would have been something along those lines but the remoteness and the structures floating in the water threw me a bit.

    Do people live out on those things? Hard to gauge but it looks rather large.
     
  6. For you yorkshire types what's this?

    53 32 18.89N 1 20 48.68W and zoom in.

    Scratch
     
  7. It's a message from Eddie.
     
  8. I was sad enough to use the measure tool in Google earth and they are 20-odd m in diameter. :oops:
    People don't live on them, but if you look you can see a square/rectangular structure adjacent to the cages. This is where they store food/nets/equipment and usually have some kind of hut, where people slack off/drink tea/read porn when they aren't looking after the salmon etc..
     
  9. I would look, but I can't do Google Earth at work, can't do ARRSE or Google Earth at home.

    Pesky modern computers....

    Do you want a demonstration? :D
     
  11. If you can't use Google earth, just try the map tab at the top of the google home page. It too has a satelite function but will work on any old PC (I think)

    Try these co-ordinates too-nothing rude of course, a nice bit of park in Liverpool - Zoom right in. 53.380463, -2.897553
