Millions Of Migrating Fish Getting Pieced Up By Sharks And Tarpon Shows How Much It Sucks To Be Small
Three things in life are certain: death, taxes, and the annual Fall migration of mullet along the Atlantic coast of Florida. Every Autumn for the past million years, give or take a few, schools of millions and millions of mullet have migrated south along Florida‘s Atlantic coast escaping Winter in the North in search of the warm/temperate waters of South Florida.
Mullet, if you’re not familiar with that fish, is an absolutely delicious fish when smoked, but it’s functionally a vegetarian so you’ll rarely if ever catch them on a rod and reel (you’d basically need to snag one with your hook). The apex predators also know how delicious mullet are and take advantage of the annual migration to gorge themselves on delicious silver fish. In this STUNNING VIDEO from BlacktipH we can see sharks and tarpon going ham on the mullet, and it’s absolutely mesmerizing:
Now for some highlights in GIF:
If you’ve never had the chance to witness this in person I suggest getting yourself on down to the Sunshine State and checking this out firsthand. With all the mullet schooled up it’s easy pickings to catch the apex predators looking for an easy meal.
