Dolphin Watch UK posted footage from 12 miles off the coast of Dartmouth of Giant Bluefin tuna in a feeding frenzy. 

They posted the video with the post: "Just one of the perks of working with different boats along the coast is you just never know what your see next!
"This is about the best footage I’ve seen this last few years, things to note here are the speed and size of these stunning apex predators also the tiny size of the bait they are feeding on. Another important thing with tuna at such close quarters is the stationary boat! These fish hurdled the bait right under the boat... so you can imagine why having no engine running is very important.
 
"What a spectacle to be lucky enough to observe, 12 miles off of Dartmouth this year!! Thanks Owen!"
