Finback whale 21 years later !

We can say this is really an old acquaintance!

This year, in the St. Lawrence estuary, the MICS team took a picture of a finback whale which has a really distinctive dorsal fin!


Matching the picture proved easy and was quickly done.
And guess what?
The picture we have in our catalogue dates from 1979!
This individual is F024 and was observed in the Escoumins area in 1979.
The only other observation is off Forestville this year
