As (1) climate change continues to disrupt ocean temperatures and (2) commercial fishing continues to deplete fish stocks, the traditional distinctions between the purported "cultures" of Orca will melt away like glaciers. They all share the same species-specific adaptations and opportunistic ecological niche. Watch. As the "resident" Orca's fish stocks slowly vanish, they will behave more and more like "transients" and one might look back and wonder if they were really all that different to begin with.
