Sardine Run

One of the greatest marine spectacles on the planet, the annual sardine migration takes place from Agulhas Bank and northward up the east coast of South Africa.

For the bean counters, there are no accurate figures on how many tons of sardines swim up the coast so let’s just go with huge and massive. How many sardines do you think there are in a shoal that is fifteen kilometers long, three and a half kilometers wide and nearly forty meters deep?

These little silver fish form the butter of the sea and the plankton that they feed on the figurative bread. Bottom line is that it is no fun being number two in the food chain. Especially when these are in the area:

  • 20,000 Common Dolphin
  • 5,000 Bottlenose Dolphin
  • Thousands of Gannets
  • Countless Gamefish
  • Thousands of Sharks
  • Hundreds of Seals
  • Orcas
  • Bryde’s Whales
