In addition, sampling occurred concurrently with research that identified feeding patterns of selected dominant species (Torre and Targett, 2017) and this concurrence provided an opportunity to assess the potential role of predator-prey dynamics of the shore zone nekton over the diel temporal range.
Diel movement patterns in the absence of food were quite evident for both species, and were generally consistent among all four deployments for both species (Figs.

A team led by Daniele Bianchi of McGill University in Montreal used acoustic data collected by 389 US and British research cruises between 1990 and 2011 to investigate so called diel vertical migrations (DVMs)--whereby sea creatures that dine near the surface at night submerge into the safety of deeper, darker waters at daybreak.
