Despite the winds, rain squalls and poor visibility with messy seas we found a whale and obtained its fluke ID. T
This whale has been matched by Roger Etcheberry to a sighting by Tara Stephens off St Anthony Newfoundland on Aug 12th 2007. It was also matched (all within hours of obtaining the fluke ID on the ocean and posting it here) by Gale McCullough
as Ratso first seen in 1984 and identified by Mingan Island Cetacean Society know?
This whale's North Atlantic Humpback Whale Catalogue number is #1473
