Each winter, millions of small sardines move up the coastal waters off the eastern shoreline of South Africa. The sheer scale of this natural phenomenon is quite spectacular, as thousands of seabirds, dolphins, whales, sharks and hordes of other predators follow the huge sardine shoals. Crowds of people gather on the coast to avidly harvest the fresh fish served up by the sea! www.southafrica.net
