Abstract : The research was planned to attack four major problem areas of cetacean biology, using conditioned response techniques. These were: (1) To develope a porpoise that could be released and retrieved in the open ocean, using conditioned response training and sound retrieval cueing. (2) To measure the maximum swimming speed in this animal using an open water timing range. (3) To measure diving depth using the trained animal and a depth telemeter. (4) To carry out detailed dissections and description of a putative lower jaw waveguide system, and its relation to the inner ear.
