fish are attracted by light by nature, however some species more than others  but i've seen a few similar  videos of unsporty guys in australia using the same style.

Hi Eddie

Science does give indication  that certain fish species are phototropic ..which mean that they will move to a light source...this clip however is very suspect in term of the amount of fish in the air..I would suspect that maybe some use of special effects.

MAYBE
