Whale sharks (Rhincodon typus) feed on baitfish with other predators at Ningaloo Reef

Whale sharks (Rhincodon typus) feed on baitfish with other predators at Ningaloo Reef We provide rare in-water evidence of whale sharks feeding on baitballs in the presence of other predators. Our observations provide evidence of the complexity of whale shark feeding behaviour and provide a compelling insight into the interactions of this species with other predatory taxa in Western Australia. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Pacific Conservation Biology CSIRO Publishing

Abstract

We provide rare in-water evidence of whale sharks feeding on baitballs in the presence of other predators. Our observations provide evidence of the complexity of whale shark feeding behaviour and provide a compelling insight into the interactions of this species with other predatory taxa in Western Australia.
