How did the fish get caught in the sea?

You must be thinking that how these fish got trapped in the sea. These whales are pilot whales. Pilot whales are 20 to 23 feet long and can weigh up to 3 tons. Actually, whales live like a family. There is a leader whale in the group of pilot whales, which is followed by everyone else. But this is the only reason for their getting trapped. The main reason is their interconnection. Even if a whale wanders off, the other fish in its group do not leave it. Their journey continues simultaneously. If a fish is injured in their group, many whales accumulate around it. This is the kind of family relationship that is seen in them.

It is said that whales celebrate the death of one of their companions or the sorrow of separation from them like humans. She is sad like humans and stays with him for a long time. But looking at these pictures, it seems that this and this bond is above human relationships. As a person climbs the stairs of success, he goes away from his own people. In the human species, the feeling of supporting people in difficulty is also decreasing. But the species of fish has not left these qualities.

– Whales running in the group go astray floating behind their leader.

Sonar systems are often installed in the sea to find enemy submarines. Their sound can be up to 230 decibels. This sound distracts sea creatures.

– There is also an apprehension that pilot whales come to such sandy areas of their own will and give their lives together.

– In the same island of Tasmania, Australia, 200 pilot whales were also trapped in 2009, after this, this incident has happened for the second time. As the days pass, the chances of saving whales are becoming less and less.
