Antares´s tracking route

Antares is a far traveling mother who remained within Golfo Nuevo for 17 days after transmitter deployment, and then began her migration. Antares and her calf traveled 2,688 kilometers (1,670 miles) during the 61 days they were tracked. They first made a long crossing of the continental shelf, then rounded the southern coasts of the Malvinas (Falkland) Islands, to finally head north to the continental slope at the latitude of Golfo San Jorge where they were close to Electra and Amalthea.
