Detection of benthic and pelagic diving. The histogram shows the empirical distribution of the distance between maximum dive depth and sea bottom, while the lines show the fitted mixture of n normal distributions (best model for n = 4). The fitted distribution with mean closer to 0 was assumed to be the distribution of benthic dives (mean – 3.15 m). The dashed line shows the threshold (2.2 m) used for distinguishing between benthic (<= 2.2 m) and pelagic dives (>2.2 m)
