When you're on a whale-watching tour, it's fine to hear that humpbacks are baleen whales who filter great quantities of water for such things as krill which they eat. It's much better to have your captain (Larry in this case) net a bunch of krill so you can have a close look at them. It's hard to imagine how many million of them a whale must eat in a day.
