According to the study on Humpback whale “super-groups" by marine biologists Mduduzi Seakamela of the National Department of Environmental Affairs and Kenneth Findlay a lecturer from the Cape Peninsula University of Technology, the number of these super-pods off SA's coastline has since tripled since 1990 and now sees groups as large as 200 all congregating and feeding together. With research suggesting that some interesting communication is going on among the whales, as "somehow even more have learned that—for stuffing their faces—South Africa is the place to be.“
