While watching the doco "The Search for the Ocean's Super Predator " on the ABC the other night, I was fascinated by the seabird activity in a marine hotspot south of Bremer Bay. Amongst other things, there were a large number (20-30) of Orcas present, which was apparently unusual in Australian waters.

Apparently there may be a hydrocarbon seep in a canyon that is the base of the food pyramid there. It would be interesting to see how the seabird abundance there compares with that off Albany (the port of southern pelagics in WA).

Regards, Laurie.
