The sardine race
“The sardine race” is one of the most beautiful shows in the natural world. Every year millions of sardines migrate from the icy waters of Cape Point in South Africa to the north along the east coast of the country.
This fish is adept of the philosophy of security in numbers, since they migrate in great schools. But these fantastic photos reveal that sometimes the number does not make the force.
As the northern migration of these animals begins, a feast for dolphins, whales, seals, and seabirds feasts with giant fish balls also begins. This show was documented by underwater photographer Greg Lecoeur, who traveled from his home in Nice, France, to photograph the migration of sardines, which usually takes place at the end of June.
At the time of migration, sardine shoals may be more than 14 kilometers long and three wide, usually swimming at a depth of 39 meters. In fact these clusters of fish are so large that they can be seen from space.
