Humpback whales seen ‘bubble-net feeding’ in Australia for first time

Humpback whales 'bubble-net feeding' in Australian waters has been captured on video for the first time. The drone video was taken at the end of 2020, but researchers have studied the whales' behaviour, confirming they were using the technique.

The video was taken off the Sapphire Coast in southern New South Wales
