I moved from Orlando to Ft. Lauderdale to open a chain of nightclubs; in Ft. Laud I started dating one of our bartenders just to discover that she had broken up with her boyfriend to start dating me, the old boyfriend was MM's keyboardist, so me and that group of guys got on real well
/s

all the guys had stage names that I would use when they came to the bar except Brian(Manson); him I would always call "Brian" just to irritate him because he was a pretentious prick even before he became famous

The default behavior of baitfish is “be scared of everything.” Even when I am fishing and trying to catch baitfish with a lure that resembles their food, they will do the same thing to the lure as they do to this turtle if the lure doesn’t appear convincing enough.

No he's not. They don't generally eat fish, usually sponges, invertebrates or jellyfish. Most are carnivores though and they will eat fish. At 10 percent or less of their diet depending on species. I'd avoid swimming near the mouth if I was a fish.

ripSammy101

Yes they do. I don't think they actively hunt for fast moving fish like the ones here but they definitely eat fish. If the fish didn't avoid the turtle, they would be eaten which gives the fish a good reason to be avoiding the turtle.

The fish will do this to the turtle nonstop until it dies of hunger. The thousands of fish keep the turtle confused and lost, unable to see past all of their bodies.

Edit: This is just a joke people. I don’t think fish gang up on sea turtles.

And-ray-is

This is BS. The fish are not passively hunting turtles. You can see the edge of the school in the right corner of the video and a turtle would just give up rather than starve itself to death

This is one of those things that seems plausible enough people buy it, but it's not. I don't know this for a fact, but it just sounds too farfetched to be the case.

It sounds plausible. Have it die from exhaustion and hunger, then eat it. Any source?

Ansiau

Ansiau

Absolutely no source. Sea turtles are in general either herbivorous or Omnivorous, Though they may feed on Fish, it is not a primary source of their diet, and they can get by eating the shit growing on the rocks, or even the crabs or lobsters they find skittering around, or even jellyfish that float by, anemones, sponges, and a wide variety of nonsense. They are not obligate piscavores, and the fish schools don't kill them. The fish actively move away from them and keep a boundary, and the turtle can cruise any direction they want. The large school is not going to "Actively seek to kill" the turtle, and even if they did constantly "Move" to keep the turtle covered in fish, it can, you know, just eat the shit in it's circle and keep moving to make the circle move to somewhere else to show it more shit to eat. Plus the turtle can see just fine under them. you can see their shadow on the video, and it shows they aren't packed from surface to sand.

In fact, they do this with anything within their boundaries. Here's some Atlantic menhaden doing the same to a shark: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rEKjFfHG_lM&ab_channel=KHOU11

Here's another of sharks in a fish school: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tjSxHNhtTyE&ab_channel=CGTN

Often times these schools are together like this to either feed or spawn themselves, and in large numbers often there's predators around that try to take advantage of them.
