Video Captures Shark 'Feeding Frenzy' at Island Beach State Park
Sharks have a bunker feast off the beach.
A YouTube video posted by a local fishing website shows what are suspected to be brown sharks or sand tiger sharks feasting on baitfish off Island Beach State Park in Ocean County.
The video, shot by Tom Lynch of AngryFish.tv, shows the sharks in a frenzy about 50 feet off the beach, presumably feeding on bunker, a type of baitfish plentiful in the shore region.
"This rare feeding frenzy started about a mile offshore and moved into the surf zone in a matter of minutes," a description of the video posted on Youtube reads.
The video was shot Thursday, Aug. 16. Island Beach State Park is about 40 miles north of Ocean City.
