On September 7, 2013 we were working in Sainte-Marguerite Bay. One group of 10 animals appeared to be essentially composed of large males, while another group of seven beluga whales was made up of juveniles: what we commonly refer to as “ados”. We performed a biopsy on one of the beluga whales in AL’s group. Around 10:00 a.m. the animals became quite active and began behaving in a manner typical for this particular bay: tails and heads started popping up above the surface. We managed a second biopsy on a second individual. We left the group of 30 individuals late in the morning.
