Cetacean osmoregulation

Friday, 17 May 1996 8:14am CT

Do cetaceans drink the seawater they live in??
Does anyone know?
How do they osmoregulate their physiology if they do?
I've found research being done on the West Indies manatee that can reside in
both fresh and saltwater to study how they do in a prolonged saltwater
environment. They supposedly obtain all their water from what is in the
food they eat for their bodily needs.
