Humpback whales hunt using a technique called “bubble netting”. The lead whale swims towards the surface, blowing bubbles in a spiral. The spiral “net” of bubbles traps fish within it while a second whale makes a loud feeding call. The rest of the pod swims up through the bubbles to eat prey within.
