I am interested in assessing the interaction between Humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) and the California sea lion (Zalophus californianus) who are commonly seen together in feeding clusters off the coast of Monterey Bay. We want to analyze and determine what type of symbiotic relationship is displayed between the two species, and the effects it has on Megaptera's foraging behavior.
