    Tom Donahoe - "Bubble Net Feeding": A pod of humpbacks work together to feed on herring. While swimming below the school of herring, one whale creates a net of bubbles which causes the herring school to swim closer together. Another whale sings a song which frightens the herring causing them to form an even tighter school. Then the whale pod in a coordinated thrust lunge up through the school with mouths open, devouring the herring. The whales swim around for a bit then dive one-by-one and about five minutes later, up they come again. We saw about five episodes on a recent cruise to Alaska. We were told that humpbacks are loners and that this is about the only thing they will do as a pod. It's not a natural behavior. Out guide said that only about 50 humpbacks know how to do this.
