Marebox – Nov

During the months of October, November, and December 2020, Marco Montiel-Soto and Misael Morales Vargas made 30 expeditions in a semi-rigid boat to observe, listen, and understand the cetaceans that surround and inhabit the south-west coast of Tenerife island. They recorded the sounds of pilot whales, who use whistles for communication and find their prey using sound pulses, an ability known as echolocation. In addition to these recordings, they also recorded dolphins and some anthropogenic noises such as the chains hitting the structure of a fish farm.
