WHOI biologist and Marine Mammal Center director Michael Moore recently traveled to New Zealand to study the sperm whales off the coast of the Kaikoura Peninsula. Team members of the team deployed in small boats from the research vessel Alucia and used a long carbon fiber pole to place non-invasive digital tags (Dtags) that record the movements and sounds of individual whales.
