Mike,

Looks like "Sputnik" may be on the move again. After spending a week or so
on the south eastern edge of Georges Bank, "Sputnik" appears to be moving
slowly towards the north east. His latest locations are about 30 miles
from where he was yesterday. Heading in this direction he is continuing to
stay on the edge of the bank, and can continue to be over water that is
shallow enough for him to reach bottom. His latest move is not as
straight as the run he made when first released, so he is not heading in
one direction as quickly. Hopefully the next few days will tell us if he
continues to make his way north. Remember, he was originally tagged in
Canada this past winter (most likely on Sable Island) and it will be
interesting to see if he will find his way back to that range. He still
has quite a way to go....
