Top Predator Hotspot Persistence


This dataset contains surveys of foraging patterns of marine predators. The predators studied were black-legged kittiwake (Rissa tridactyla), thick-billed murre (Uria lomvia), the humpback whale (Megaptera novaeangliae), and the fin whale (Balaenoptera physalus). Surveys were taken once a year in 2004 and from 2006-2010 and compared the foraging patterns of these predators to pollock and euphausiid concentrations.
