3. I've watched them do that

Off the coast of the tip of Cape Cod. It is an unforgettable thing to see up close:

The North Atlantic humpbacks will often splash their tails to create the bubbles, then dive, and then come up in the middle with their mouths open to catch the fish. They then push the water out through the baleen with their tongues, and swallow the fish. The seabirds know what is coming, and fly close so as to catch fish that escape the whales' open mouths.
