      Re: Blue whales are acting strange in the Pacific, according to a marine biologist. A buddy of mine is a marine biologist, and he says they are diving deeper than ever. So deep, in fact, that it is rewriting the their idea about how deep they can dive. Unlike many other whale species, the Right whale has blowholes spaced far apart, which makes the animals easy to spot from above the surface. As they exhale, a “V” shaped blow pattern can be seen. Smaller than Blue Whales but larger than Grey Whales or Humpback Whales, they grow to be about 18 meters long and can weigh more than 90 tons.

    Most whaling nations used to concentrate their hunting efforts to the Antarctic, as whales tend to prefer the colder water. This was banned in as an estimated , blue whales had been killed in the region. Although the news is great for the California Blue whales there is still a long way to go for the rest of the world’s whale levels.   Divers will travel far and wide to find the best diving. But those who live in the United States have plenty of great diving on their doorstep as well, with plentiful access to the Atlantic Ocean, the Pacific Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico. From warm-water reefs to temperate seas, here are some of the top places to scuba dive in the United States.

      These included establishing the geographic range and migratory patterns of eastern north Pacific blue whales; establishing that the eastern tropical Pacific appears to be a blue whale “hot spot” where as many as four, but primarily three, acoustic populations of blue whales occur; determining that the Gulf of Alaska is a region where Cited by: 1. They eat kg of food per day and are known to take mackerel, salmon, tuna, squid, sea turtles, stingrays, sharks, seals, sea lions, porpoises, dolphins, grey whales, minke whales, and many other species. However, killer whales in the Northeast Pacific Ocean have very specialized diets and do not feed on all prey that are available to them.
