Bristol Bay Follow Up

October 8, 2012 

Follow Up: Bristol Bay Beluga Whale Health Assessment Research Project 2012

It has been three weeks since Eric Gaglione, Director of Zoological Operations/Mammals & Birds at Georgia Aquarium, and the field team left Dillingham, Alaska. Since that time Rodd Hobbs, the projects Principal Investigator, has been sending regular updates on the data transmitted from the nine whales that were tagged. Most of them remain in the Snake River where the team spent their final day. One is further out in Kvichak Bay where it has been since the day after it was tagged. Just one whale remains further up the estuary, and is in the Wood River.
