The common name for those fish is Sprats, and the scientific > name is "Sprattus fuegensis". The reason that the penguins almost exclusively > catch sprats here in the south is because they are very common in Patagonia, > and live in large groups, called shoals. > > Because sprats live in shoals, the penguins are able to catch them quickly once > they have located the shoal. The penguins swim around the shoal eating one fish > after another, and can quickly catch enough to take back to the nest. Of course > the shoals have millions of fish
