RESEARCH QUESTIONS • How do tākapu partition the gulf resource? • Potentially explains different populations trends in inner vs outer gulf • Are there favoured foraging areas? • How persistent are these? • Do individual tākapu show patterns to foraging? • Do foraging patterns provides indication of important foraging rules (cues to finding ephemeral prey) • How does knowledge of foraging inform their potential use as indicators of ecosystem change in this coastal system?
