Beaufortia (1977)


A Harbour Porpoise, Phocoena phocoena, taken from near Shallow Bay, Mackenzie River Delta, Northwest Territories (68°48’ N 136°35’ W) in July 1973 represents a range extension 800 km eastwards from the previous extreme northeastern record on the north Alaskan coast.
All 12 Harbour Porpoises so far examined from either the extreme north of the range of the species in the eastern North Pacific Ocean, or from the extreme south of the range in the eastern North Pacific and eastern North Atlantic Oceans, are large animals.
