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.
