Dolphin Horde off Dana Point: Squid Horde Also; Connect the Dots?

Common Dolphins were caught on camera by a tourist boat stampeding in the water and an underwater camera even caught them beneath the surface.

Although the news stories on this concentration say the cause was unknown, a similar story of giant squid concentrated off Dana Point was in the news---sounds suspiciously like reporters are lazy across the board.

The tour guide says there are 450,000 dolphins off the California Coast as opposed to two hundred in the entire Mediterranean: a sad fact if true.

Large numbers exist off Florida and around the Bahamas, but I don't know if the warm Gulf Stream brings up as much food as the warm Humboldt Current off California & the entire West Coast including Alaska.
