An orca, or “killer whale”, takes part in a cooperative hunting technique named carousel feeding. This practice is unique to the orca population of Northern Norway and is only used on wintering herring. The orca will herd the fish into a tight “bait ball” by releasing bursts of bubbles and flashing their white undersides, then push them to the surface and stun them with the slap of a tail.
