A few sightings

The Northeast Fisheries Science Center (NEFSC) aerial survey group spent more than five hours on March 24 conducting a survey of Stellwagen Bank and Wilkinson Basin. One fin whale, one harbor porpoise and one North Atlantic right whale were sighted.Weather permitting, the group plans to fly tomorrow to conduct a survey of Cashes Ledge.

On March 20, the group surveyed Great South Channel – SCOPEX South and  observed 5 Atlantic white-sided dolphins, 1 minke whale and 2 harbor porpoise. No North Atlantic right whales were sighted during the nearly four-hour flight.
