Development of Respiratory Sampling to Assess Stress Responses in North Atlantic Right Whales

Abstract

Our primary long-term goal is to assess whether respiratory sample ("blow") analysis can be developed as a practical method of physiological stress assessment in free-living cetaceans. Few methods exist for assessment of physiological stress levels of free-swimming cetaceans (Amaral 2010, ONR 2010). Respiratory samples (blow) can potentially be collected… (More)
