    Observations and radio tagging of Balaenoptera edeni near Puerto La Cruz, Venezuela
    (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1979-12) Watkins, William A. ; Notarbartolo di Sciara, Giuseppe ; Moore, Karen E.
    The 23 October to 13 November 1979 Venezuelan radio tagging and tracking experiments on whales (Balaenoptera edeni, Fig. 1) provided essential field tests of the new modifications to the WHOI radio whale tag (see list of tag reports), and the chance to try it on a new species. We found that we could approach and tag these whales from a slow (4 to 6 kt) vessel. Good radio tracking with automatic direction finding equipment was possible within 12 to 20 km, with longer ranges probable. In addition, the radio tags provided new information about the behavior of these whales.
