Schools in

The experience of  a school of fish passing through the murky depths can be mesmerizing...  I was lucky to encounter a large school of pollack (or saithe) while diving off the Farnes... usually these fish are found in much smaller groups.

Its hard to tell from the video whether they are saithe or pollack - the difference is in the curvature of the lateral line, not something obvious given the poor visibility.
