Basking sharks, subby.  Ergo plankton eaters.  I'm not familiar with any plankton sailing boats.

Snarfangel: DrEMHmrk2: Hey science guys, here's a hint: they go where the food is.

And the food goes to where they aren't.


Actually in this case the food is microscopic plankton, which means it goes where the nutrients, sunlight and temperatures are most complimentary to their lifecycle.

The sharks, which are known to be a solitary species

WERE, Were known.  You have seen the in large groups 10 times in 30 years.  That is what is known as a pattern.  You thought they were solitary, but now have empirical evidence that you were wrong.  Time to change your hypothesis.

FTFA:
The study also suggests that these huge sharks, that can grow up to 32 feet, may have gathered together to reduce the drag caused by having their mouths open while feeding.

Ok, now you are just making shiat up.

The drag is proportional to the flow of water through their mouths, which is proportional to the amount of food they get.  Let me give you a hint.  People don't go to bars at happy hour, when the bars are crowded, so that it is harder to get served alcohol,  They go to get laid.  Let me throw this up on the wall and see if it sticks.....

Maybe this isn't about drag, or food, maybe you found a basking shark singles bar.

bobobolinskii: Maybe they're just protesting Trump, in their own sharky way.


No, media would have claimed there were millions of sharks that showed up.
