Killer Whale Research Highlighted in International and Local Media

The research of scientists from the Southwest Fisheries Science Center on killer whales (or orcas) was featured recently in Nature, the world's foremost weekly scientific journal. The article, Killer in the Kelp, describes some controversial theories about the different types of orcas observed in the field and the research of our scientists to advance the base of scientific knowledge on this matter. Also, the La Jolla Village News, published in our own backyard, has a story on this scientific research: Biologists Posit Three Killer Whale Species.The previous link is a link to a non-Federal government web site.
