Record #207834:

Greenland sharks as predators of seals in Svalbard / Christian Lydersden, Kit M. Kovacs.

Title: Greenland sharks as predators of seals in Svalbard / Christian Lydersden, Kit M. Kovacs.
Author(s): Lydersden, Christian.
Kovacs, Kit M.
Date: 2012.
Publisher: Tromsø, Norway: [Fram Centre]
In: FRAM Forum 2013. (2012.),
Abstract: Outlines results of research into diet of Greenland sharks (Somniosus microcephalus). Analysis of stomach contents of 45 sharks captured during studies of diet, pollution levels and anatomy showed that more than one third of sharks had fed on seals and 20% had eaten whale blubber. Further research, using Institute of Marine Research's DNA register, revealed that whale blubber had been scavenged from Minke whales (Balaenoptera acutorostrata) killed in North Atlantic fisheries.
