Inter-specific competition for prey is thought to influence the structure of ecological communities and species niche breadth. Harp seals Pagophilus groenlandicus and hooded seals Cystophora cristata are geographically overlapping and highly migratory predators in the North Atlantic ocean. Hooded seals are known to dive deeper and longer than harp seals and are more closely associated with the continental shelf edge and deep ocean. Quantitative fatty acid (FA) signa- ture analysis (QFASA) was… CONTINUE READING
