[Cetology] Whale fall communities of the deep sea | The stage of scavengers



Whale fall communities of the deep sea 
- The stage of scavengers by Michael Rothman 

“In the first stage the soft tissues of the carcass are removed by scavengers, such as sharks, hagfish, and dozens of other species of invertebrates and vertebrates, capable of removing up to 60 kg per day of soft tissues.”
