Hi Jenifer,

I recommend you write to Professor Andy Reid at Duke Marine University in
Baeufort, NC.  Call 919-504-7590 to get the address.  He does a lot of
studies on harbor porpoises and the use of pingers.  I have also heard of
other studies where killer whale sounds and a fake killer whale dorsal fin
have been used to deter sea lions from fish nets.  From what I heard, the
sounds frightened the animals away moreso than the dumby whale.
Good Luck, Kim Marshall
