Feeding ecology of eastern North Pacific killer whales Orcinus orca from fatty acid, stable isotope, and organochlorine analyses of blubber biopsies
Fatty acid, stable isotope and PCB profiles of the resident and transient ecotypes were consistent with those expected for these whales based on their reported dietary preferences, and these ecotype profiles exhibited broad similarity across geographical regions, suggesting that the dietary specialization reported for residents and transient whales in the well-studies eastern North Pacific populations also extends to the less-studied killer whales inThe western Gulf of Alaska and Aleutian Islands.

The area around the wellhead was the last area in federal waters to be reopened nearly 1 y after the spill began and as of November 9, 2011, some state waters off the Louisiana coast (Barataria Bay and the Delta region) remain closed to fishing.
Use of chemical tracers to assess diet and persistent organic pollutants in Antarctic Type C killer whales
Profiles of these individual tracers were very different from those of killer whale populations that have been studied in the eastern North and eastern Tropical Pacific, and results were consistent with a diet of fish for Type C whales, but other species could not be eliminated as supplemental prey.

An h.p.l.c.-fluorescence technique was used to estimate relative concentrations of metabolites of xenobiotics in bile of 103 English sole from both polluted and minimally polluted sites in Puget Sound, WA.

Stratification of lipids, fatty acids and organochlorine contaminants in blubber of white whales and killer whales
It is demonstrated, for white and killer whales, that properly interpreted results from blubber biopsies can provide valuable information about the body condition, health and life history of individual animals.
