Wildlife Extra writes about this video:
March 2013. Joe Dutra, captain of a whale watching boat in San Diego, reported in February that he had seen a vast ‘super-mega pod’ of dolphins covering an area 7.5 miles long and almost 6 miles wide and containing an estimated 100,000 dolphins. The entire group of dolphins appeared to be common dolphins.
Several thousand birds, seagulls, pelicans and others, were also in the area and there was a huge amount of bait activity which assisted in this feeding frenzy!
Captain Dutra said: “In my past years in the fishing industry, years ago, I used to see massive schools of dolphins off the coast of Central and South America, but nothing like this. This was a once in a life time experience. Truly Amazing!”
Going fishing this summer? Watch your gear and don’t cut the line. Fish with hooks have been found embedded in the throats of dolphins off the coast of Florida: here.
