UPDATE: Southern Resident Killer Whale Satellite Tagging
4 March update On 2 March staff from the NWFSC, Cascadia Research Collective, and Biowaves, on the NOAA vessel Bell M. Shimada, intercepted K pod off Cape Blanco using location data from its satellite-linked tag. L pod was also present and a tag like the one on K25 was deployed on L88. These tags have allowed us to remain with these two pods almost continuously for the last 3 days as the whales have made their way up the Oregon coast. As of this afternoon they were off Cannon Beach, Oregon.
