    We are in the Saguenay Fjord, near Baie Sainte-Marguerite. We recognize Delphi. She is swimming in a herd of approximately thirty individuals comprising both adults and young, including two newborns. Baie Sainte-Marguerite seems to be a unique and highly important site for St. Lawrence belugas. It is located approximately twenty kilometres from the mouth of the Saguenay and lies within the Saguenay-St. Lawrence Marine Park (SSLMP). The role that this bay plays for belugas, especially females and young, is not yet fully understood. It might be a feeding, resting or socialization area for young. It might even constitute a calving ground for females like Delphi, though this theory remains to be verified.
