Subject: seal location data "Bubba"

Mike et al.

Below are more locations on "Bubba". After a bit of an interruption over
the weekend we appear to be back on line again.

The good news is that this is getting very interesting (having said that I
am now probably jinxing myself). "Bubba" remains about 50 miles offshore
(east of southern Maine). His locations appear to be clustering around
depth areas of about 200-250 meters deep. Although we have no way to tell
how deep he is diving, other hooded seals of his size that we have tracked
with dive recorders have spent only a small amount of their time diving as
deep as the bottom in these areas.

"Bubba" is also the first hooded seal that we have tracked that has
remained even this close to shore following release for this long.

Hopefully we will be able to see if these trends continue. (keep your
fingers crossed)
