Every winter South Africa’s east coast sees
billions of sardines converge in the biggest bi-
omass migration on the planet. As they move
up the coast, this 4–mile long shoal faces a
range of predators from seals in an ancient
colony, to Cape gannets launching aerial at-
tacks, and hundreds of hungry sharks that
coral the sardines into bait balls. A super pod
of dolphins arrives, and the sardine numbers
are decimated. Everything favours the pred-
ators, until the orcas come.
