You better hope whatever they tradiationally feed on is doing well, or we may have some new residents in the GOM eating fresh sashimi.

Adult orcas eat 500lbs of food each day. 100 orcas will eat 50,000lbs of tuna in a day. Let's say there were 200 orcas in that area. 100,000lbs of tuna would have wiped out Horn Mountain's fish. Onto greener pastures!

They work together to surround a school of fish and have their way with them. There are several types of orcas, Offshore, Resident and Transient. Some orcas specialize in marine mammals and others don't. Atlantic orcas travel in large groups to work together while fishing . I just hope they move on, but, like gimmedeal, I would like to see them as well.
