Amalthea´s tracking route

Amalthea and her calf stayed within Golfo Nuevo for 24 days after being tagged. During that time they traveled mostly in the coastal areas between Puerto Pirámides and Puerto Madryn. After beginning their migration, they traveled directly to the continental slope off Golfo San Jorge, where they arrived on October 26. Amalthea and her calf remained in this feeding zone for 18 days until we lost contact with them on November 13. While being tracked they traveled almost 2,700 kilometers (about 1,678 miles).
