Within these regions, marine mammal consumption appears frequent relative to the more fish-based diet within traditional habitats. To provide insight into feeding habits of northward range-expanding killer whales, full-depth blubber fatty acid signatures from 21 free-ranging killer whales from southeast Greenland, Faroe Islands, and Denmark were compared to those of 4… CONTINUE READING
