Species sighted: Fin whale
Today on board the Corsara we managed to spot a fin whale still close to the coast, about 5 miles from Andora.
We were on the bathymetry of 600m, on the continental slope, when we sight a puff not very far from the boat. It was a fin whale in a habitat it doesn’t usually prefer. In fact, we usually observe fin whales in pelagic areas far from the coast. Probably due to a change in underwater currents it moved to follow its source of nourishment.
