VIDEO: Schools of Fish Make For An Amazing Sight in the Raritan Bay.
In between Staten Island and New Jersey sits the Raritan Bay, which is known as a home to various forms of aquatic life. According to Wikipedia, some of Raritan Bay’s fish include striped bass, fluke, winter flounder, bluefish, tautog and weakfish. The crustacean species represented include the blue crab, fiddler crab, green crab, horseshoe crab and spider crab. Clams and mussels also live in Raritan Bay.
Yesterday, NJ.com posted a video on their YouTube channel featuring a whole lot of the Bay’s seafaring population. Through drone and underwater footage, we’re introduced to more fish than you’ve probably seen in one place your entire life. Aerial and underwater video was captured by professional photographer Nick Kita, on boat between Staten Island and New Jeresy show massive schools of menhaden roiling the surface as they attempt to escape the jaws of attacking bluefish in the area.
