We spot Hector for the second time this week. We had photographed him in the same sector on August 14, at the confluence of the Saguenay and the St. Lawrence, between Pointe Noire and Pointe Rouge. Today, he is swimming in a herd of some thirty individuals, including adults, young and three calves. Hector is swimming in the company of 7 other large “grays”, all young adults whom we’ve nicknamed the “teenagers”. The mouth of the Saguenay is a meeting place! Here, networks of male belugas regularly cross paths with those comprising females and young. Short-lived herds form here due to the abundance of food.
