Hi everybody

I have just posted a short film about anchovy, a keystone species in Atl’kitsem/Howe Sound. The film features the giant schools of anchovy that appeared in 2015 and 2016 in Atl’kitsem/Howe Sound and the resulting flush of whales, sea lions, seals, and salmon that feast on them.

This film is part of my ongoing efforts to collect and share the stories of Wild Nature in Atl’kitsem/Howe Sound. All are posted on YouTube (search on “Bob Turner, Howe Sound”). Please share these with anyone whom you think might be interested.

Well done Bob. I've been wondering what type of baitfish I was seeing occasionally down at Sept Morn beach. Also the antics of large flocks of surf scooters near the shoreline were chasing something in a coordinated fashion. Now I know. Thank-you.

Great video, and a great story! Thank you Bob.

The video wonders whether the anchovies would return to Howe Sound for a third successive year in 2017.
Did they?
