Sea ice is sea ice. Hard to see how the thickness of sea ice would affect the foraging for cod, cuttlefish, shrimp and squid; and they are deep water feeders. Mmm... sounds like your politics is showing - anything to blame natural variability on humans it seems. More likely to do with the slaughter of these fine beasts, I would think.

They are much in need of protection, as are all Whales and Dolphins. Please boycott any marine park that have captured whales and dolphins. The capture methods and treatment in captivity are very cruel. For more information please check out the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society.

Love narwhals. Imaagine how freaky it would be to see one raise it's horn out of the ice water whilst fishing (back before David Attenborough)
