Our boat is plying the waters of the mouth of the Saguenay. A group of about twenty belugas is present, including Blanchon. As we draw closer to the herd, we notice that it is composed of adults and young – essentially females we reckon – and a first-year calf. The mother is unknown. In fact, not many individuals in this herd bear distinctive markings. Only one other beluga is recognized, DL1007, possibly another female. It is estimated that approximately 20% of the adult females can be identified.
