Subject: Humpback on SB

I just received a report from the Center for Coastal Studies of a humpback
entangled in gillnet gear north of the SW corner of Stellwagen Bank.

CCS will be underway shortly in the R/V Shearwater.  Whale watch vessels are
standing by. 

The whale seems to be anchored and is reportedly calm.
