Fish has his chips

Today's Times carries a picture of one of FN's Dolphins 'playing' with its salmon dinner. A really great photo carrying the acknowledgement 'Charlie Phillips.' You might be able to catch it online. Obviously copyright so can't post here. But poor salmon! A nice 12lb fish too.Very HappySad

Fennie's Avatar That's wild salmon too - not even the farmed stuff. It's someone's Christmas dinner (oak smoked) that she's demolishing so carelessly. We used to think it was the seals doing for the salmon but dolphins are a lot bigger. Seaweed is nutritious - and full of iodine - if Zephyr fancies a change of diet!Very Happy

But how on earth do you take a picture like that?Shocked

Seals eat relatively few salmon despite public (fly fishers) opinion to the contrary, they eat mostly sand eels with things like herring, whiting and ling making up the rest.
HO has had several vegetarians over the years try to get him to tell their kids the dolphins only eat seaweed Rolling Eyes they get nowhere, he reminds them dolphins are top predators and as likely to eat seaweed as a lion is to eat grass.
