  • Description:
    From 10 to 20 August 2001, a cooperative tagging project (including scientists from the NMML and the NMFS Alaska Regional Office in Anchorage, as well as members of the Native Village of Tyone) attached satellite tags to seven beluga whales in Cook Inlet, Alaska. The first whale was captured in the Little Susitna River and the rest were captured in Knik Arm. A 1000-ft. net was used to encircle and entangle whales. Captured whales were quickly removed from the net and placed in a sling between rigid-hull inflatable boats; one or two tags were surgically attached to the whale's back; measurements were taken; skin, blubber, and blood samples were collected; and then the whale was released (See Table 1 Below).
