Sailfish is the most exotic baitball team member. Always at odds with other species, it's possible to film it only during short quiet periods when sharks and dolphins take a break from continuous attacks and leave for few minutes. Sailfish stuns school of sardines with it's big beautiful fin and captures individual fish afterwards with quick precise movements.
