UPDATE: 4.17pm – Video footage of what appeared to be a massive school of sharks has turned out to be snapper.

A drone photographer spotted the massive school off Rockingham this morning.

The school was spotted 80 metres off Warnbro Sound just before 10am.

Aaron Groom posted the drone footage to social media.

It is estimated there are 80 to 100 fish in the school.

Meanwhile, a fisherman was circled in his boat by a great white shark this morning.

He was pulling pots off Little Island a kilometre off the Perth Metropolitan area at the time.

*One collective noun for a group of sharks is a frenzy.
