ProjectDual-proxy approaches to resolve the feeding ecology of killer whales, Orcinus orca, across the northeastern Atlantic ocean
I work on killer whales from the northeastern Atlantic Ocean. We know that, in some regions, killer whales are separated in ecotypes depending on what they eat and where they live. We do not have enough information about the killer whales in the northeastern Atlantic Ocean. We need to understand how the different populations are separated to do a good conservation job. Using chemical information from the whales blubber, we can trace their diets and assess the pollution levels in the different populations.
