A Galapagos sea lion blasts through a school of salema looking for a meal at Cousins Rock Galapagos Islands. The salema are not the preferred prey of squid and larger fish but an El Nino event had driven the larger fish deeper into cooler waters out of reach of sea lions. Thousands of sea lions perished during the protracted El Nino event.
