Abstract Summarizes report from joint CCAMLR- IWC workshop to review input data for Antarctic marine ecosystem models. Discusses lethal and non-lethal methods of quantifying prey preference of baleen whales, and discusses hypothesis that killing of two million large whales led to competitive release for krill-eating species like Antarctic minke whale and use of genetic methods to estimate pre-whaling abundances.
