First deployment of a multi-sensor camera tag

May 10, 2019

As part of the situation assessment, Richard Karoliussen and Eve Jourdain from Norwegian Orca Survey attached a camera tag (www.cats.is) on Hvaldimir's back with suction cups for the first time. The experiment (conducted under permit, Mattilsynet) aimed at gaining behavioral insights and answering the question of whether Hvaldimir was feeding on his own, or not. Results were needed to assess if feeding the animal was necessary.
