A seal has been caught on film chasing down fish – and a fisherman – at Merimbula. 

Melbourne visitor Karen Ramsay was filming the fish-chasing antics of a seal at Fishpen, Merimbula.

The seal darts back and forth only centimetres from the shoreline chasing its prey at top speed.

However, it’s the a fisherman of the human variety that makes this footage even better!

After catching the fish, the seal pops out on to the sand to enjoy its meal, but perhaps thinks the fisherman with his rod is a potential threat to the prized catch.

Thankfully no-one was harmed in the making of this video – except the tasty fish of course.
