Great news from the Gordon Gunter! The tag came off the whale last night and started giving good position, both fast lock and Argos satellite fixes. At 0600 we sent up a flying bridge watch to look for the tag. Tag recovered at 0630! The ship put us about 30 meters from the location Nicole Brandt spotted the tag and Kristy Johns the mate brought the tag right down the port side and into a long handled net. With the tag on board and the data downloading we are on our way the the east end of our very northern most CTD line to work east to west. Late tonight we will need to break off line to head into Boston for the crew change. That is all the news for now, but so far not a bad day!
