Collective awareness enhances the awareness of each individual, but it's effective because  in addition to offering more information, it offers them more options as to how they deal with that information.  Shared intelligence increases the intelligent capacities of each individual in predictable ways.

On the other hand, there are predators who have also predicted that herding fish into groups will increse their individual vulnerability if the predator is smart enough to do it right.
