Aerial fish stocking is a method of seafood storage developed in the late nineteenth century by Sir Edward Richard Henry on a late-night LSD trip in the forest with wolves. This was just before his Grand Epiphany, after which he spent five years staring at his fingertips. Aerial fish stocking is not to be confused with hanging food from trees when camping, a practice that began as a tribute to The Worst Attempt at Bear Baiting Ever.

The main difference between aerial fish stocking and conventional fish storage lies in elevation. Where conventional fish stocking takes place chiefly at ground level, aerial fish stocking is done high up in the air. The idea gained popularity with the increasing urbanization of the UK (and the rest of the free world) as warehouse real-estate became increasingly scarce. The invention of floating unicorn palaces in 1907 also contributed greatly to its growing utilization around the world.

Aerial fish stocking has not been used since 1991 due to concerns put forth by the FDA and several private organizations.
