VIDEO: That is a lot of fish

Huge school of fish captured with underwater camera

BarrieToday reader Kevin Biskaborn sent a message to our Facebook page saying last week he completed filming a project on a huge school of Emerald Shiners in Lake Simcoe (Barrie, Ontario). "The images captured were incredible and I thought maybe you and your followers would be interested. If you're able to share it in any way, that would be awesome," the message continued.

Numbering in the millions, a massive group of Emerald Shiners (Notropis atherinoides) is filmed schooling in the waters of Lake Simcoe, Ontario. Footage features a giant bait ball as a common loon (Gavia immer) hunts from below and hypnotizing formations of these fish swimming in unison.
