Passive acoustic recordings can identify whale species presence and behaviour in an area over time. Here a combination of moored and mobile receivers were used for acoustic surveillance of the deep-coastal and offshore waters of Clayoquot Sound, off the west coast of Vancouver Island. This study adds to the acoustic record of fin whale (Balaenoptera physalus) presence in the Canadian Pacific. Whale calls are a proxy for presence, and call type is an indicator of behaviour and habitat use. The… CONTINUE READING
