How to use "Shoalest" in context?

Most people think of shoals as small schools of fish or a group of ducks on a pond. But shoals can be much more massive, consisting of thousands of fish or birds. They are often found in tight water spaces, such as between rocks, or near the coast.

Shoals are surprisingly effective at defending themselves. As with any group of animals, shoals are likely to attack whatever comes near them first, thinking it is a predator. But this quickly creates an interesting physiological effect. An individual in a shoal becomes tied to its neighbors, partially shielding it from predators and increasing its chance of survival.
