This study characterised, for the first time, periodically abundant and variable pygmy blue whale prey across the southern Australian shelf. Prey was closely tied to weather and ocean features. Foraging habitat and whale interactions described here will aid rapid assessments of profitable whale areas and forecasting effects of ongoing habitat change.
