    We cross paths with Blue off the coast of Rivière-du-Loup, in a large herd of around one hundred individuals. The animals are swimming alone or in very small groups and are heading upstream. Within the herd, we notice a few entirely white individuals, but 60% of them are gray or slightly gray. The herd is composed mostly of young belugas, grays and others that we refer to as “dirty white”, which are less than 20 years old. We also observe a newborn and a “bleuvet”, that is to say a second-year beluga. In the course of this encounter, we perform seven biopsies. A successful day!
