Description: The majority of Eastern Pacific gray whales ('Eschrichtius robustus ')migrate from southern breeding grounds to the Bering and Chukchi seas where they feed principally on benthic amphipods throughout the summer. However, increasing numbers are now summering in locales along the coast locales along the coast of Oregon, Washington and British Columbia. Clayoquot Sound on the west coast of Vancouver Island is one area where gray whales are known to summer in relatively large numbers. M.Sc. Thesis, Queen's University
