Although Ken Norris primarily worked in and around the Pacific Ocean, his interests were almost as wide geographically as they were scientifically. I met Ken aboard that wonderful barquentine Regina Maris sailing along the northeast coast of Newfoundland in 1976. During a short cruise his famous interest in just about everything and extraordinary insight into the natural world gave us a new and lively perspective into the waters and animals that we were trying to study. Another rich marine system which caught Ken's attention was the Galápagos, and one of the animals with which he was most intrigued was the sperm whale. Partially in response to his enthusiasms and ideas, we have been studying the Galápagos sperm whales since 1985. Here is an analysis of what we have seen.
