Video: Orcas

Underwater feeding frenzy - High up in the winterly fjords of Northern Norway: a pod of orcas hunting for herring. Great underwater footage!

Every winter the fjords of Northern Norway are full of herring. And with the herring there come the orcas. In this video you can see how they maneuver underwater to trap. In Norway and Iceland, Orcas herd together large schools of fish into a big sphere and encircle them or enclose them within a wall of air bubbles. Then, they stun individual fishes with a strike of their fluke and pick them out.
