Beaufort Sea beluga satellite tagging program
Principal Investigator: Richard, Pierre
Licenced Year(s): 1993
Summary: Beluga whales will be herded into shallow waters with boats and kept there for a short period of time. Whale size and sex will be determined and a small sample of skin will be taken for DNA analysis. Satellite tags will be attached to the dorsal ridge area of ten whales. These tags will allow the researchers to locate the whales' movements and diving patterns over the next several months....

Principal Investigator: Mate, Bruce R.
Licenced Year(s): 1992 1991
Summary: The Researchers will once again attempt to tag 12 bowhead whales. They will study how the whales move about during the feeding season and where and when they migrate west out of the Beaufort Sea.
