Dolphins and Porpoises Abound

No North Atlantic right whales were sighted during the Northeast Fisheries Science Center (NEFSC)’s March 25 aerial survey of Cashes Ledge, but several other species were observed. The aerial survey group reported seeing 34 harbor porpoises, 5 fin whales, 4 humpback whales, and 14 Atlantic white-sided dolphins.

The NOAA Twin Otter survey lasted almost five hours in good to excellent conditions.
