(Monterey Bay Aquarium) New research from Monterey Bay Aquarium and partner institutions published in Nature Scientific Reports challenges the notion that great white sharks are the most formidable predators in the ocean.

In every case examined by the researchers, white sharks fled the island when orcas arrived and didn't return there until the following season. Elephant seal colonies in the Farallones also indirectly benefited from the interactions.
