Diving behaviour of belugas (Delphinapterus leucas
) in the shallow waters of Western Hudson Bay.
Large mammals such as beluga (Delphinapterus leucas
) were well suited for a recall survey of this nature since, because of their size and their food contribution, a hunter was less likely to make an error when reporting a kill of 0 to 3 animals than when estimating, for example, how many herring were caught over an entire month (1000s).
At least five stocks of beluga whales, Delphinapterus leucas
, occur in the waters of Alaska (Fig.
Moreover, Christopher Malcolm and Heather Penner's study of the social and ecological aspects of beluga whale (Delphinapterus leucas
) watching in Churchill, Manitoba, presented in chapter four, illustrates the value of using a range of methods within a single project to advance management, industry, and research considerations.

Beluga (Delphinapterus leucas
) and bowhead (Balaena mysticetus) whales are two of the Arctic marine mammals that are often reported along ice edges and in polynyas (Fay, 1974; Carroll and Smithhisler, 1980; Stirling, 1980; Reeves et al., 1983; Carroll et al., 1987; Crawford and Jorgenson, 1990; Cosens and Dueck, 1991; Richard et al., 1998; Stewart, 2001; Harwood and Smith, 2002).
