I finally got to visit the British Science museum with a friend last week.
There was a 3D show on at the time called "Wild Ocean" which we decided to watch. To our amazement and wonderful surprise it was based on one of the world's spectacular and great natural annual phenomena, which occurs in the winter months along the untouched and sheer cliff drops off the Wild Coast, in South Africa. It gave our hearts a sense of warmth and belonging as the distinguishable voice of John Kani narrated the expedition of the SARDINE RUN!
Every year millions of these silver fish make their way north along the east coast of Kwazulu-Natal, swept along with the cold current of the water.

These shoals create such an extravagant phenomena that it is visible by satellite. People crowd the beaches every year around this time to watch shoals of it being netted in by business hawking seamen, and also to make their claim by spending early hours of the morning fishing the conventional way.
