Bubblenetting Print
This is a method of feeding that is quite extraordinary. The humpback whales dive beneath a school of fish, swimming in a circular pattern. Breathing out, they blow bubbles which form columns of air. These bubbles expand as they float towards the surface, forming a 'net' from which the fish do not escape. The whales continue to blow bubbles as they circle towards the surface, before opening their enormous mouths and engulfing the fish that they have trapped in their bubble net.
