These guys were just enjoying a dive on an ordinary day at Catalina -

"I was diving inside on the east side of the bed when I came across a dead sea lion floating in a net. At first, I thought it was an isolated net but as I started to follow it my stomach tightened. For several hundred feet in both directions, the Wall of Death became very clear. It killed indiscriminately.
There were 5 to 6 sharks, one being a five foot blue, 3 birds, 3 sea lions, 5 white sea bass, one being 35 lbs., Garibaldi's, perch, Sculpin and at least a hundred lobsters were tangled up with the assurance of their death"
close by.
