Admin - the title should read 'Massachusetts' not 'Maine', can you correct, please!

The video is recent? Looks pretty amazing, but not necessarily a good thing. How does it relate to this? -

Yep, dated as 19 August. They're obviously feeding well in the video, so one hopes the starvation event mentioned in the NYTimes is over. But with overfishing, plastics pollution, and global warming, things definitely not so good for the longer term future.

PS thanks admin for correcting the title!
