BIO: We are very very excited to have Hanson Buoy with us. She has a flipper tag! The information we received from the tag was the following: She was part of a FP transmission study here between 1994-1997. She was then released in November of 1997, and at that time she only weighed 35 lbs. Wow has she grown!
