Foraging Behaviour of a Continental Shelf Marine Predator, the Grey Seal, is Associated with In Situ, Subsurface Oceanographic Conditions

Grey Seal TracksNew research looks at the association of bio-physical conditions with movement patterns of large marine predators. Over five years between 2009 and 2015, researchers used Wildlife Computers high-resolution archival GPS tags to capture seal data on Sable Island, Nova Scotia. The research shows that environmental factors—such as chlorophyll-a concentrations and upper water column temperature—are key predictors of foraging behavior.
