Like straight out of Finding Nemo.

While Elon Musk‘s Hyperloop could one day transport humans hundreds of miles, mother nature has already developed a similar system undersea, researchers have found.

Researchers spotted a bizarre phenomenon they think could ‘suck-up’ small marine creatures and carry them at high speed and for long distances across the ocean.

Known as a ‘smoke ring’,  it is a strange new type of eddie, a swirling motions some tens to hundreds of kilometers across, which mix the water and carry it across the average currents.

The 'smoke-rings'were spotted in the Tasman Sea, off the southwest of Australia and in the South Atlantic, west of South Africa, by analysing sea level measurements taken from satellites together with sea surface temperature images from the same time and place.

‘What we found was a pair of eddies spinning in opposite directions and linked to each other so that they travel together all the way across the Tasman Sea, taking six months to do it,’ said Professor Chris Hughes of the University of Liverpool, which carried out the research with the UK’s National Oceanography Center.
