Little fish in the surge

It’s common to see shoals of small fish, like those in the photo, close to shore in the surge area, where waves crash ashore. Swimming in groups gives these young fish their best chance of making it to adulthood, and staying near rocks in shallow water is another form of defense for them.

I find it amazing that even little fish like these will accelerate and change direction almost as one.
