Fish usually move in large schools known as bait balls to avoid predators and be safer in the wild waters.
The concept behind this is “safety in numbers.”
These bait balls move in an extremely coordinated fashion. Take a look below!

The flexibility, organization, and coordination of these schools means that the fish are able to communicate at some level and act as one.
Almost all of the deep-sea divers have seen these bait balls in motion more than once.
Sometimes you can even be lucky enough to have a look at them from a shorter distance. But what’s extremely rare is the occasion of swimming right through a bait ball.
This is just priceless and once you experience it, you can’t forget it.
Serena was fortunate enough to see it. Serena is an experienced scuba diver, in fact much more experienced than people of her age. In her dives, she has witnessed shipwrecks, hammerheads, whale sharks, stingrays and sea turtles from a very close angle.
The young lady has more than a hundred dives under her belt that she took in the Pacific Ocean, the Atlantic Ocean and some lakes in Canada.
Even with all those diving experiences, Serena got extremely excited when she witnessed a bait ball from the inside.
Watching a bait ball from the inside is something that cannot be explained in words. The view is spectacular with silver scales and multicolor stripes all around you.
The dive in which Serena experienced this priceless show of nature took place near Santa Cruz Island, a part of the Galapagos.
Galapagos are among some of the top beautiful areas in the world.
These islands are home to extremely diverse wildlife, which has learned to achieve harmony between the constant hostility and peace that nature offers here.
For divers like Serena, every single trip down the ocean surface is a whole new experience.
