I saw this clip on tv yesterday afternoon and I didnt see what had happened although the host/hostess aka tv were telling us as the video was going. I missed it. They said, I bet you blinked and missed it as it went so fast... we ll play it again. Sure enough here was two fishermen and one holding this huge blue marling standing the pier with yachts bobbing along side the pier and behind the fishermen and all of a sudden this huge seal skimmed and jumped out of the water and grabbed the tail of the blue fish which btw was huge...huge... and the Seal grabbed the fish with its mouth and pulled as it descended back into the water. The fish holder turned so fast and returned back to the camera in absolute shock and giggled when he discovered it was a Seal who nicked his huge fish. Ahhh aint nature and wild life amazing. The Seal was obviously hungrier than the men. It was quite a shock/funny to see... hahaha the Seal won!

At least the man got to have a photo taken of his catch- the sea lion just didn't think the two men needed two fish, so he took one!

The seal needed the fish to survive. Humans do not need fish to live.
