Leaping fish bombard family boat

A video featuring scores of Asian carp jumping out of a river and bombarding a boat in the US has gone viral on YouTube.

The 70-second clip shows a family travelling down the Spoon River in Illinois which is heavily populated by the fish.

Asian carp have a fear of boats, and are blessed with an amazing jumping ability, reports Newslite.

So when a boat passes over them, the 5-10lb fish leap up to two metres from the water en masse.

The video has notched up nearly 430,000 hits on the video sharing website.

The un-named camera man posted: "My brother, nephews and a friend go "fishing" down a small drainage ditch in the flooded Spoon River.

"The funniest part, is that Matthew, my youngest nephew, is curled up in the fetal position in the front of the boat the entire time, and you never see him!"
