Coste is one of the few whales we have observed bubble net feeding solo and vocalizing at the same time. For us, this is a rare opportunity to derive an acoustic fingerprint on an individual whale. With this type of data, we are hopeful that it will one day be possible to identify humpbacks by sound alone through our network of hydrophones. When not solo bubble net feeding, Coste is often seen in late fall feeding and socializing with other whales. We have never seen Coste in an all-male group or with a calf, and whether Coste is male or female remains a mystery!
