NEWS: Field stories: Humpback bubble-nets

Sep 22, 2014

In July, the Vancouver Aquarium’s research vessel “Skana” made its inaugural trip to the top of B.C.’s coastline. The area didn’t disappoint, there was stunning scenery and great whale encounters, but most memorable was our day recording and observing a group of eleven bubble-net feeding humpback whales!


Wild Whales is the home of the B.C. Cetacean Sightings Network, a conservation and research program of the Vancouver Aquarium, in partnership with Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO). We collect sightings of all cetaceans (whales, dolphins and porpoises) and sea turtles from British Columbia and surrounding waters. Have you seen one? We'd like to know!
