After a gorgeous patch of calm weather and even some smoky conditions offshore, the CWR and AIMS crew are very excited to be watching the tags we have deployed so far.
Rosemary, the large pregnant female tagged on ANZAC Day seems to be searching for krill in both the northern and southern areas at the eastern part of the Perth Canyon, while Goosey appears to be favoring the head of the canyon. ANZAC, also tagged on ANZAC Day, assumed to be a male accomplice of Rosemary, could be starting its northern migration from the Perth Canyon. In the next few days we’ll confirm ANZAC’s movements, as we see more positions along the west coast as well as the foraging behaviour of Rosemary and Goosey.
