AFSC/RACE/MACE: Association between large cetaceans and their prey: East Kodiak

Metadata Updated: December 7, 2020

Analysis of two different surveys of acoustic and biological data from the Albatross Bank region of the Gulf of Alaska off eastern Kodiak Island indicates that humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) and fin whales (Balaenoptera physalus) can both be found in close association with their preferred prey items. Notably, humpback whales are most often found in association with highly concentrated patches of krill, and fin whales are found in association with schools of capelin.
