Whale Watch

Published in the August 2008 Issue August 2008

Boston, Mass.-Whale watching is a $30 million tourist industry in New England with some 40 whale watching boats out on the water on summer weekends looking for humpback, minke, fin and right whales. Researchers with GPS receivers went undercover in 2003 and 2004 and now report that whale-watching vessels are exceeding their agreed-upon speed limits and changing whale behavior.
