Hi Emily,

This behavior is quite common in Santa Monica Bay even if sea lions usually
forage more with common dolphins than bottlenose dolphins in this area. I
wrote a publication about sea lion and dolphin aggregations during feeding
activities in the bay back in 2006 entitled:

Bearzi, M. 2006. California sea lions use dolphins to locate food. Journal
of Mammalogy 87(3):606­617.

I also have photos and videos of these animals feeding together on sardines
or anchovies.

You can download the PDF of the publication from the Ocean Conservation
website at http://www.oceanconservation.org/research/publications.htm

Please, feel free to share this information with any Marmam member.
