Massive school of anchovies

22 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

I admit that it's a bit weird to talk about them being living breathing beings because most of the time they're spoken of only as a delicacy, but there's a massive school of anchovies off the coast of California.

School of anchovies resembles oil slick

No need to worry, it's just dominos herding the anchovies to their ultimate pizza demise!

Mmmm, salty deliciousness! Caesar salad, anyone?

BTW, it's not a good idea to swim through schools of bait fish, you never know if your arm or leg might be mistaken for a snack by a shark or barracuda.

What an extremely cool video. It's not rare to see large schools of anchovies in the waters off San Diego though (they feed those yummy Bonita which become my tacos mmmm). What's unusual is for the water to be 74 degrees. That's really high for La Jolla, even in July. Is it El Nino this year? I haven't been keeping track since I moved inland.

When scuba diving a huge school of thousands of cigar minnows swam past us. It's cool they way they open a hole for you and close it back up again within inches.

Not a single one. That's what is so amazing about. You'd think at least one would be out of sync but they move in perfect unison. We did think about the fact that something much, much larger could be chasing them.

Did you catch sight of the nifty shark swimming through at around 45 seconds? They catch it again underwater ...

:P Most sharks actually aren't dangerous...gotten fairly close to many of them. I worry about more critters on dry land than I do underwater.

They are picketing the local Pizza Hutt and complaining against unfair pay and conditions for Anchovies working in the pizza industry :yes:

Stunning looking sight though! Love it when nature throws us a curve ball like this....industrial action or not lol

I've seen a massive flock of birds acting in a similar. The sounds of thousands chirps and wing flaps are nothing I have ever heard before.
