    Serena is in a group of about twenty individuals, close to Anse Saint-Étienne (Saint-Étienne cove) in the Saguenay Fjord. Visibility is excellent, despite heavy cloud cover. The herd is composed of adult and young belugas, including four newborns. DL1050 is swimming in the company of two females well known to the field team, Céline and Athéna. They’re heading slowly toward Baie Sainte-Marguerite, which is often the final destination of herds swimming up the Saguenay Fjord. To this day, it is still unknown why belugas are particularly fond of this bay. Once they reach the bay, they sometimes stay there and swim in circles for hours.
