Update on our offshore team: The Shelagh and the offshore crew were tied up for a couple of days in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia but departed Yarmouth in the early morning hours of Wednesday. They surveyed Roseway in a 3-6 foot rolling ground swell and reported no large whales of any kind. They will continue survey effort through Thursday (I will report details of that survey soon) and then head to Cape Sable Island for fuel and rest. The weekend looks unfavorable for any survey effort both in the Bay of Fundy and offshore on Roseway Basin.
