The humpback whales come to our area for one reason and that is to feed. They feed heavily on krill and small fish such as herring. In this photo you can see that the humpback has done what is called a lunge feed. This is where they come straight up with their mouths open and try and consume as many fish as possible. The small fish you can see jumping are herring.
Lindy Taylor from Great Britain provided this great photo of a grizzly bear that “just” caught a salmon below the viewing stands on Knight Inlet’s Glendale River. If you take time to enlarge this photo you will see that the pink salmon is still bleeding. This bear had just come to feed and had not been splashing in the water because it still has litter from a daybed on its back…fishing eating tomorrow.
