What is the Sardine Run?

This is an expedition like no other and we are super excited for the Sardine Run 2022!

Every year off the coast of South Africa, billions of sardine’s spawns in the cool waters of the Agulhas bank, and from there they usually split into thousands of shoals as they move northward along the east coast of South Africa.

With this immense amount of migrating fishes it attracts the oceans apex’s predators who work together to round up and get in on this feeding frenzy.
