In a press release issued by the Committee on Research and Education of Marine Mammals (GREMM), Cetacean was first announced at 12:30 pm today.

The panel notes that on Monday, May 9th the RQUMM around Trois-Rivers may be the same person already reported and may be coming out of Warrens on Wednesday morning.

A team from the Quebec Marine Mammal Emergency Network (RQUMM) found him and sent him to the scene to track his movements.

“This second observation is far more surprising than the first sight. The presence of a minke whale in this part of the river is already a rare occurrence. Said.

According to the GREMM, the first whale appears to be still healthy and in good physical condition.

On Wednesday, he spent most of his day floating in the current near Île Sainte-Hélène.

The animal measures approximately 3.4 m, which corresponds to a juvenile between 0 and 2 years of age.

The dimensions of the second animal are unknown at this time, but the views refer to a smaller person.
