Os tubarões-baleia são os maiores e mais pesados peixes do mundo - podem chegar a 12 metros de comprimento - e geralmente viajam sozinhos em busca de plânctons e pequenas presas, com as quais se alimentam.
 
No entanto, um número impressionante destes animais foi visto na costa leste de Yucatán, alimentando-se de ovos recém-colocados do peixe Bonito Pintado, abundante na região.
 
 
"Ver um grupo tão grande em um só lugar foi fenomenal - chegamos ao ponto em que não era possível navegar o barco pela água sem se preocupar com os peixes. Foi impressionante", Mike Maslanka
 
 
Segundo o estudo, a reunião pode mostrar uma mudança nos hábitos dos animais, que costumam aparecer em menor número ao norte da península, onde a água tem mais plâncton.
 
A pesquisa, divulgada na publicação científica PLoS One, reuniu organizações conservacionistas do México e dos Estados Unidos. A União Internacional pela Conservação da Natureza classificou o tubarão-baleia como espécie "vulnerável", no ano passado(2010).
