'Unique' Populace of Killer whales off B.C. coast Identified by Scientists

A worldwide team of scientists have recognized a vulnerable populace of whale slaughterers, who spend maximum time hunting seals off the British Columbia coast, they have been identified as a diverse group alienated from its fellow orcas in Canada and away, about 700,000 years back.

The whales, known as the North Pacific Transients, are well known to have an unusual choice of prey compared to subtle physical anomalies or a more pointed dorsal fin.

However, a genetic research, led by the U. S. National Marine Fisheries Service, comprising 16 American and Danish scientists, have revealed that the projected populace of about 300 individual North Pacific Transients is globally unique.

If the application is supported by the broader scientific group, the small populace of whales off the Pacific Coast would basically become Canada's scantiest group.

John Ford, a University of British Columbia killer whale expert and federal fisheries scientist, stated, "It's a very exciting story, we've suspected this for many years but just haven't had the strength of evidence that this study has provided".

The outcomes of the orca genetic project were based on specimens tested from hundreds of samples collected across the globe.

The results have been published in the latest issue of the journal Genome Research.
