Supplemental information

Data correction: Sightings of humpback whale was mistakenly linked to Balaenidae (180531). It is now linked to Megaptera novaeangliae (180530). Changed 3/8/06.

In addition to the sighting data, effort data were recorded every half hour or whenever conditions changed. This dataset, therefore, should be used with the effort data.
