Cc: Kimberly Thounhurst <Kimberly.Thounhurst@noaa.gov> Subject: Humpback on SE Stellwagen The Center for Coastal Studies called to report a humpback entangled on SE Stellwagen Bank early yesterday evening. It was too late to do a disentanglement, so CCS headed out to try to locate the whale and attach a transmitter to the gear. Unfortunately, fog rolled in and curtailed the search. Apparently the whale was mobile but staying in an area where a lot of humpbacks were sighted yesterday. There should be a lot of whale watch activity, so hopefully the entangled whale will be spotted some time when the fog lifts.
