    Splash is observed off of Île Rouge. We have the impression that we’ve come upon the same beluga herd as the one we encountered the day before in the vicinity of Cacouna. Comprising about 70 belugas, the herd forms a long stationary line running parallel to the coast. The sector is a hot spot of activity, with gray seals and minke whales interspersed throughout the herd. Around noon, the wind picks up. We lose sight of the individuals swimming upriver from the herd. Despite the weather conditions, we manage to perform a biopsy on one of the belugas.
