The blue shark, Prionace glauca, eats a number of small prey, though squid appears to be the favorite food, especially when the squid are forming large breeding aggregations. Other prey include cuttlefish, octopus, lobster, krill, shrimp, crab, a large number of bony fishes such as anchovy, mackerel, herring and sardines, small sharks, and occasional sea birds. Blue sharks will also feed from gill nets and scavenge dead marine mammals such as whales.

Blue sharks are preyed upon by man, and also by California sea lions, Zalophus californianus,  shortfin mako sharks, Isurus oxyrinchus,  and white sharks, Carcharodon carcharias.
