2010 01 26- Another match to one of our 2009 whale fluke ids, a span of 26 years Print E-mail
Written by Andrew Stevenson   

Leah at Allied Whale made a great match to one of our fluke ids above, taken on the 12th of March 2009 by Camilla Stringer. The previous sightings below, are 1983 off Labrador (Jon Lien's group at Memorial University of Newfoundland) and  1992 off St John's Newfoundland (YoNAH). We missed making this match ourselves because of the double black spot on the older black and white image and the slight mark on the right fluke which turns out to be an impermanent smudge from diatoms, not a scar. But Leah at Allied Whale wasn't fooled! All I can say is, what happened to that extra black spot seen below? It was there before, but apparently no longer.
