ONTARIO: This is easily the fishiest video we've ever seen

It gets a little looney somewhere around the two-minute mark

BARRIE — Kevin Biskaborn, a reader of sister site, caught up with us on Facebook to let us know that last week he completed filming a project on a huge school of Emerald Shiners in Lake Simcoe.

"The images captured were incredible and I thought maybe you and your followers would be interested. If you're able to share it in any way, that would be awesome," the message continued.

Numbering in the millions, a massive group of Emerald Shiners (Notropis atherinoides) is filmed schooling in the waters of Lake Simcoe. Footage features a giant bait ball as a common loon (Gavia immer) hunts from below and hypnotizing formations of these fish swimming in unison.
