Off the coast of Kamouraska, near Île aux Fraises, we observe Solidaire in a herd of pure white adults accompanied by a few “dirty white” individuals, i.e. young adults. It is unusual to see a herd consisting predominantly of males this far upstream in the Estuary. The animals are engaged in what is known as “milling”. They are swimming in circles, diving and resurfacing multiple times at the same spot. This behaviour is often associated with feeding. Furthermore, several individuals are returning to the surface covered in silt.
