Some fishermen noticed a flock of seagulls circling and started filming. Below the surface, a pod of humpback whales are herding a ball of sardines (or some small feeder fish) into a tight group. Then they attack the ball from below, swallowing dozens of fish in one gulp.

The GREMM research team was filming a group of belugas when they realized a narwhal was amongst them! “After the initial excitement of this discovery, our first question was: is this the same individual as the one observed in 2016 and 2017? We therefore landed the drone and took out our camera to take a few snapshopts. After photographing our vagrant as well as his companions from both sides, we were able to confirm that it was indeed the same narwhal!”
