KMRS had the pleasure of hosting KMRS veteran & WAMSI CEO Steve Blake overnight. Steve visited with a team of 2 whale researchers, all of whom were taking part in a Kimberley whale and zooplankton research voyage onboard the "Walcott". Whilst coordinating a team change onboard the vessel which moored at Cygnet Bay overnight, Steve and the team managed to collect Cygnet Bay's first ever hydrophone recording before heading to Pender Bay to continue the whale research. The recording features an array of distinctive underwater sounds including calling gropers!
Thank you Steve and co for calling in and for sharing the recording with us!
