Actually they are fast... Killer whales are among the fastest swimming marine mammals. Killer whales are apex or top predators in the ocean. Known as "wolves of the sea", killer whales often hunt cooperatively in pods for food; working together to encircle and herd prey into a small area before attacking. When hunting a large whale, a pod of killer whales may attack the whale from several angles. They may also slide out onto sandbars or ice floes in pursuit of prey and are capable of hitting ice floes from below to knock prey into the water.
Their food sources must be threaten for there to be so many pods in the gulf... either that or global warming is affecting the migration of their food sources.
