An unexpected surprise - Dolphin Strand Feeding in Kiawah-Seabrook Island while in our dinghy. EP28
Just happened to catch this yesterday with granddaughter Bea. In South Creek, off North Edisto River, Seabrook-Kiawah Island, SC near Charleston, SC. Amazing Dolphin Strand Feeding.
Strand feeding, so-called because the prey fish are stranded on the shore, occurs along the East Coast only in South Carolina and Georgia, and has been reported in just a few other places around the world.
Underwater, small groups of between two and six dolphins - sometimes more - herd fish tightly together into a "bait ball." Then, forming a line, the dolphins accelerate to create a bow wave that forces their prey onto shore as they, close behind, surge out of the water in unison.
