On board the Bleuvet, we crisscross the Saguenay in search of belugas to study. We cross paths with a herd of 25 belugas, consisting of white adults, young grays and two newborns the colour of café au lait. Initially, all the belugas are in a single herd, but after an hour they break up into smaller groups of four to five individuals. Nikamun is in a group of six adults and one juvenile. After identifying a few individuals, we can see that the herd is mixed. We recognize males Vita, DL0197, Jetstream and DL0370. It starts to rain, the animals swim off and we head back to shore so as not to damage our equipment.
