Don’t slip and fall in…
This video looks straight out of a movie. It really almost doesn’t seem real. A whole bunch of killers in a frenzy, eating everything they can as quickly as they can with so much competition.
The Gulf of Mexico is home to a wide variety of marine life, including numerous species of sharks.
Along the Louisiana coast, there have been numerous sightings of sharks engaged in feeding frenzies, a spectacle that is both terrifying and fascinating to witness.
Shark feeding frenzies occur when a large number of sharks come together on a source of food, such as a school of fish or a dead animal. This can happen for a variety of reasons, including changes in water temperature, an increase in prey populations, or the presence of a large predator like a whale or dolphin.
In Louisiana, shark feeding frenzies are often associated with the annual spawning of menhaden, a small fish that is a key food source for many predatory species, including sharks. When menhaden begin to spawn in large numbers, it can trigger a feeding frenzy among the sharks that inhabit the area.
Sharks are apex predators, which means they play a crucial role in regulating the populations of other marine species. As top predators, they help to keep prey populations in check and ensure that the marine ecosystem remains healthy and balanced.
Feeding frenzies are a visual representation of the predator-prey relationship in action. They highlight the intense competition for food that exists in the ocean and demonstrate the importance of maintaining a healthy and diverse ecosystem.
This boat is seen driving across the ocean. As the video pans behind the boat the water does not stop moving. There are sharks everywhere you look feeding as fast as the can.
The water is boiling and the sharks are hungry.
Don’t throw anybody overboard here.
