Humpback Whale: Hunting Technique | Captain John Whale Watching & Fishing Tours – Plymouth, MA
Since humpback whales are some of the biggest creatures on the planet, they tend to work up quite an appetite. That why they’ve evolved a unique way of hunting, as described in this video.
Watch this clip to catch a glimpse of the humpback whale’s dazzling hunting technique. Working together, the whales dive far below a school of herring, driving them to the surface. They then release columns of bubbles around the fish, trapping them until the whales can surface and eat their fill. A single humpback whale can eat a full ton of herring in one day!
