Humpback Whales Feeding Inside Passage

A group of humpback whales bubblenet Feeding along the Inside Passage in Chatham Strait, Alaska.

Alaska. Humpback Whales bubblenet feeding (Megaptera novaeangliae). A group of whales swims rapidly in wide circles around and under a school of fish, blowing air through their blowholes. The bubbles form a visual barrier that serves to confine the school within an ever-tighter area. The whales then suddenly swim upwards and through the bubble net, mouths agape, swallowing thousands of fish in one gulp.
