The MainichiDaily went on to say the “tree” is composed of 50,000 sardines in a feeding frenzy for fish food in Hakkeijima Sea Paradise in Yokohama as part of their “Christmas Super Iwashi (sardines) Illusion” show going on until Christmas Day.

The Hakkeijima Sea Paradise aquarium website says that this is the, “Christmas lust of fish underwater” and that the, “fish flock in a brilliance of performance.”
