Astonishing fishing footage has emerged of dozens of sharks and a whale feeding on baitfish just beyond the surf break in the tourism region of Forster/Tuncurry on the New South Wales mid north coast.

White, bull and bronze whaler sharks are among the predators chasing the fish, while a Bryde's whale, a baleen feeder, also joins the feast.

The NSW Department of Primary Industries posted the footage, taken from a chopper as part of regular aerial surveillance, on YouTube.

Here's the footage:
