'Multimillions' of Anchovies Spotted Off California Coast

There was quite a sight off the coast of La Jolla, California, yesterday: what looked like a giant dark ink stain, or an oil spill, moving and pulsing like it was alive — because it was.

It was a massive school of anchovies – multimillions of them. Scientists at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography say it’s the largest such school that’s been seen off the coast of California in 30 years.

Just incredible.
