    April was spotted with the female DL0829 in a herd of some fifteen individuals in the Saguenay Fjord. During this encounter, we attempted to take a biopsy sample from one of the individuals present; we narrowly missed our mark. Manoeuvring a boat and collecting a biopsy from a moving target is no small task. With practice, we’ve managed to attain a success rate of over 80%. When we do miss our target, there’s always a feeling of disappointment on the boat. These data are invaluable and such opportunities don’t occur every day.
