We examined the foraging behaviour of 12 adult female northern elephant seals in relation to mesoscale oceanographic features between 1995 and 1997. Females were divided into 3 groups based on the geographic region to which they migrated (‘coastal’, ‘coastal-oceanic’ and ‘oceanic’). We defined focal foraging areas (FFAs) using satellite telemetry and average daily transit rates of ≤0.4 m s–1, and examined characteristics of FFAs with respect to sea surface temperature (SST), sea surface… CONTINUE READING
