Back in the saddle

P9050002

I just returned to Boston yesterday.  All told, we tagged 16 killer whales over the last few weeks!  We really depended on Graeme Ellis’ skilled boat driving and Mike deRoos’ talent at tagging!

I did get seasick twice, once at the beginning of the trip (which I slept off) and once at the end of the trip (which I tried to sleep off, but then ate 2 salmon sandwiches, which I later got to view again as I deposited them back in Johnstone Strait).  Otherwise, the trip was a delight with wonderful food, terrific company, good stories and great science.

I’ll keep you posted on what we find out from the data we gathered.

Volker Deecke took this photo just before I left.  It’s a fitting depiction of my email list, [ari air]!
