    Hunting clubs here in Oregon are now stocking some of their ponds with Krill, in hopes of attracting them!

    I looked for where they came out of the water, because that's about the way they react to an Orca. A poster living in, IIRC New Zealand? wrote about what happened when one of those came into a bay with penguins in it. He said you'd be amazed at how far up the rocks those birds could land.

    It's all got to do with the way a species will change over time to survive,In this region there are flying fish and in order for penguins to be able to pursue a meal they too had to learn to fly.The one big draw back is since they have no feathers they aren't considered a game bird and alas cannot be hunted for their much sought after skin that eskimos used to make babies Arctic swimwear out of
