From: Fine-scale foraging movements by fish-eating killer whales (Orcinus orca) relate to the vertical distributions and escape responses of salmonid prey (Oncorhynchus spp.)

Maximum dive depths (m) and dive durations (min) of foraging (N = 701) and non-foraging (N = 10,618) dives by 30 tagged northern resident killer whales (number of deployments = 31). Confirmed foraging dives (N = 17) are marked by coloured data points indicating the species of salmon killed (Chinook, coho or chum). Non-foraging dives (gray data points) did not exceed 21 m in depth
