Shoal Fish Flee From Shark Attack!

Submitted by: WorldScott 5 years ago

Could the distraction be a strategy? Team work perhaps? Off Kuredu Island Maldives.

This reminds me of that one scene in Finding Nemo where all those fish come together to form one giant fish.

Can`t tell if those are sharks or not, but it doesn`t matter. This is a strategy quite often used in ocean species, where a shoal will bunch together for protection and the predator either tries to scatter the shoal or pushes them towards the shallows (where the only way left to go is up)or both! The bird just has to wait for the fish to be pushed in close enough to him!
