The atlantic herring, “the Tinsel”

What is shining so much in the waters of the Baltic Sea? Is it some kind of a treasure? Princess’ tiara? No, it’s a herring! It’s got silver scales, so it glitters near the surface of the sea. The herring easily loses its scales, though.


'The Tinsel' likes to eat greens: the plankton and the plants from the Baltic seabed. It also likes small fish.
