    jewel-like fish (they) circle -- plural noun, plural verb (present tense) -- correct hundreds (they) -- and since we used a present tense verb in the first part of the sentence, we need a present tense verb for the second part....hundreds (hunt) correct sentence : Jewel-like fish circle the island's underwater reef, while hundreds of sharks HUNT them in packs.
