On this day, we free dived in a massive shoal of migrating sardines, which had trapped themselves against a Transkei headland on their journey Northward. Hundreds of huge deepwater pelagic sharks where casually swimming through them. It was an astounding encounter which lasted for two days, in clear water. On the third day the sharks turned the shoal into a feeding frenzy, witnessed by only a few boats who were there, we were one. Incredible!
It is so important to be showcasing these amazing fish in the current climes, they are critical for the ecosystem of the oceans, yet we slaughter them by the hundreds of millions every year, more than their populations can bear.
