This huge school of anchovies was swimming around Scripps Pier in La Jolla, California, conveniently near an Institution of Oceanography, where two students filmed the whole thing. I can’t believe they were diving with millions of anchovies!
While the fish are harmless, they do attract sharks that go into feeding frenzies over the massive school of fish – not the best place to be swimming. See if you can spot the shark at 0:35 and again at 2:00.
There’s no way I would still be in the water around a shark going for an anchovy dinner! Yikes!
