The Ocean's Greatest Feast

Every winter South Africa’s east coast sees billions of sardines converge in the biggest biomass migration on the planet. As they move up the coast, this 4 miles long shoal faces a range of predators from seals in an ancient colony to Cape gannets launching aerial attacks and hundreds of hungry sharks that corral the sardines into bait balls. A super pod of dolphins arrives, and the sardine numbers are decimated. Everything favours the predators, until the orcas arrive.
