How much meat a day does the hump back whale eat?

    Humpback whales, as massive as they are (80,000 pounds!), eat mostly krill and small fish. They prey most upon smaller bait fish like herring and sand lance, but also have been known to prey upon mackerel and haddock. Humpbacks only feed during the summer and live on built-up fat reserves over the winters, so they must ingest between one and one and a half tons of fish per day during the fertile summer months.
