After a seemingly endless icy winter, the Arctic coast of Alaska and British Columbia, and the the northern Pacific which washes it, warm and bloom more intensely then the Amazon forest. plankton, which gets constant feeding in the deep fjords is a feast for the food chain. This starts with herring, seals and whales, which travel for months from the quiet, warm but relatively poor Hawaiian waters. Many species time births to benefit from the short, abundant feeding spray. Many build up fat reserves for the colder rest of the year.
