    Gulf of Maine humpback whale satellite tagging: 2013

    In 2013, we are continuing a study of the effects of satellite tagging on humpback whales (learn more). Tracks of the whales tagged in this study are shown below for educational purposes. Each map is based on a different type of tag and the name of the tagged whale is shown in upper left of each map.

    Maps are updated daily, but positions are reported on a lagged basis and not all fixes are mapped. Please observe our terms of use.
