Thanks to Charles S. (I did not ask his permisson to use his full name) from the UW School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences for some updated information. While schools of this size may be unprecedcented in the Puget Sound, Charles tells me that "shoals" of Sand Lance, tens of meters in size, are not uncommon in the North Pacific. For the young readers: A "Shoal" is a shallow area in a river or lake, but also refers to a school of fishes and is probably a more appropriate term than "school" when there is a "great multitude" of fish as there probably would be in a "school" that might overflow the average size home - if that home were underwater for some strange reason.
