The Nepisiguit River, which empties into Chaleur Bay, is currently too low for the beluga to reach the open sea on its own.
A team made up of MARS, the Quebec Marine Mammal Emergency Response Network, the Group for Research and Education on Marine Mammals, the Whale Stewardship Project and the Maurice Lamontagne Institute (Fisheries and Oceans Canada) is evaluating response options.
Before any action is taken, researchers must ensure that the animal is in good health.
