  Reference - Why Fish Shoal
A shoal is a group of fish that remains together for social reasons, including feeding, breeding or resting and can consist of anything from a few fish to hundreds of thousands.
If there are two shoals one consisting of 1000 fish and the other consisting of 10 fish, then the odds of an individual being eaten in the larger shoal is 1 in 1000.
Multi-species shoals do occur in the wild and in most cases the benefits of predator avoidance are obvious but some fish also benefits from the feeding advantage especially if their diet differs from that of the predominant species.
