Rare video shows seals hunting massive “bait ball” of fish in Howe Sound


Sean Eckford from one of our sister publications, the Coast Reporter, has posted a great article about the video shown below.

It was shot by Bowen Island kayaker Bob Turner and shows a giant “bait ball” of anchovies that he happened upon in Howe Sound.

It’s an “Anchovy ballet” as he dubbed it, where seals, seagulls and cormorants are dancing for their dinner as their potential meals do the same, somehow in harmony.

The really good stuff starts at the 1:40 mark.
