This work formed part of the EU‐funded BIOCET project (Bioaccumulation of persistent organic pollutants in small cetaceans in European waters: transport pathways and impact on reproduction, EVK3‐2000‐00027). The UK marine mammal strandings program, funded by DEFRA as part of its commitment to the Agreement on the Conservation of Small Cetaceans of the Baltic and North Seas, supported attendance at strandings and necropsies. R. MacLeod is supported by a Royal Society of Edinburgh Scottish Government Research Fellowship. Fear of predation produces large effects on prey population dynamics through indirect risk effects that can cause even greater impacts than di...
