The process of eating food and turning it into energy then using the energy
Ocean Alliance CEO, Iain Kerr, developed a process to track sperm whales using a multi-beam scanning sonar. This technique enables researchers to calculate: the whale’s rate of descent, of ascent, its maximum depth of dive, its bearing, and its speed throughout complete dives. This information enables institute researchers to create a three-dimensional diagram of sperm whale dives. Using this technology the crew of the research vessel Odyssey made a fifteen-month study of sperm whale diving and feeding behavior on the whales’ breeding grounds near the Galapagos Islands.
Adapts to Environment
Living organisms are adapted to their environment. This means that the way they look, the way they behave, how they are built, or their way of life makes them suited to survive and reproduce in their habitats.
Sperm whales are the biggest toothed predator on the planet and they dive the deepest out of any other known whale. They adapted to do this in order to find their food supply of giant squid.
