An entire shoal of has been frozen mid-swim off the coast of Norway.
Thanks to a sharp eastern wind, part of the ocean froze near Lovund, a small island just a few miles from the northern shores of the Norway mainland.
It was only -7.8 degrees, but the wind made wind chill cold enough to freeze the large amount of fish in place.
Aril Slotte of the Norwegian marine research institute Havforskningsinstituttet told the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK) that thinks the fish were being chased by a predator, which have made them group up in such big numbers.
