In late summer the plankton bloom is at its height. Vast shoals of herring gather to feed on it, diving birds round the fish up into a bait ball and then a humpback whale roars in to scoop up the entire ball of herring in one huge mouthful.

    I am Dutch and Dutch people like to eat herring. Here on the market one herrings costs $3.40 (E2.50). I think that whale just swallowed more than $1000,- of herring in one go. I could not afford to take him out for dinner. 🙂
