Electric eel powers Japanese Christmas tree


From Russia Today:

An aquarium in Japan has discovered a novel way of saving energy this holiday season – the lights on the centre’s Christmas tree are powered by an electric eel.

Every time the fish moves in its tank, it discharges up to 800 Watts of electricity which is supplied to the tree through cables.

Hundreds of customers have been flocking to the aquarium to see the special festive illumination.
