Nature Paper Receives Extensive Media Coverage

On June 22 the paper "Tracking Apex Marine Predator Movements in a Dynamic Ocean" was published on-line in the journal Nature.  It appeared in the printed edition July 7.  The result of a decade of biologging research on 23 species in the North Pacific Ocean, this paper described for the first time the marine hotspot of the California Current, which extends along the West Coast of North America from the US-Canada border to the tip of Mexico's Baja Peninsula.

As we had hoped, the paper generated broad media coverage in newspapers around the globe.  Click on the links below to read some of the coverage:
