    Most likely a young Omura's whale. Live sighting of a whale, quite close to shore at Pilo Milo island of Nicobar - video'd from a boat and by a drone. Lat Long data available and to be added. Based on the dorsal fin we can rule out Bryde's, Blue, Humpback and Minke whales. It is a young animal about 4-5 m long. Stayed with the boat for 15-20minutes, it at first moved closer to shore and then started moving offshore. We stayed with it for a while. Slow surfacing. no other individuals around.

Below are the comments from Sal Cerchio and Robert Brownell. Sal: "and a video was collected by fishermen for Abhishek Jalalabad's network. International experts could not ID the species" Robert: Certainly not a fin whale. Need to see outside of water. Pitman: I don't think it is a dwarf minke - that white shoulder patch would stand out like a beacon, even in this video.

    This baleen whale was recorded offshore of Mumbai. Exact location is unknown.

    Direct sighting
    Article at :
    http://www.conservationindia.org/articles/whale-and-dolphin-surprises-in-goa

    This was a pod of 100+ dolphins moving fast in a single direction possibly Northwards. Assuming there were more individuals below the surface it could be anywhere near 200. Juveniles were also present meaning this could be a single pod or multiple pods gathered together and the linear movement in a single direction suggests a possibility of predators being present in the area. No fishing activity was noticed. Swinhoe''s storm petrel as well as flesh-footed shearwater were also spotted along with them.

    A live striped dolphin got beached at Miramar beach. TerraConcsious along with Forest Dept, Drishti Lifeguard and researchers reflected the dolphin and at first took it out to 4-5m of water. It had no signs of external injury, other than some bruises near the flipper and fluke probably from being washed ashore. The dolphin beached itself again on the same day. After that the Forest Dept took the dolphin further out to sea and released it. It did not beach again after that.

    was brought ashore in Karankadu village a few km from Thondi.

    approx 7ft long. found floating by the FD. brought ashore by them. curved measurements and samples collected WII. Due to its short stubby beak and absence of spots on the belly, this is most probably a Tursiops truncatus or Common Bottlenose dolphin

    Abhijeet Prabhudesai rainbowwarriors2014@gmail.com 14-08-2017 INDIA - Maharashtra Unidentified baleen whale 14.9083424, 74.08187429999998

    The Goa network got word from the LifeGuard at Polem beach. We contacted Nirmal Kulkarni and Jehan Bhujwala for help if they knew anyone close by. Nirmal got in touch with Abhijeet from Rainbow Warriors as they were the closest to Polem. His contact Dattaprasad Prabhugaonkar at Polem sent us the pictures and the details.

    This whale was found on Polem beach. Two parts of the whale were found about 50m apart, measuring about 7m and 6.5m.
    It had beached about 2 weeks prior to the time we found out about it. The date of the record is therefore adjusted accordingly.
    Based on the flipper, it is certainly not a Humpback whale, but could be any of the other whales. The carcass condition does not allow us to ID.

    I Dr Ajay Pathak personally observed the dolphins on Aare ware shore Ratnagiri. I have also managed to capture some photos by Fujifilm finepixhx50 camera with 24-1000 lens.

    On 14th January i have sighted a large pod of Indo-pacific humpback dolphins at Aare ware coast which is located 15 km from Ratnagiri city. The pod consisted of around 20 individuals separated into four groups. The animals were swimming near to shore and were found to tolerate presence of fishing trawlers. The animals were probably hunting as tail waving and other tactics like jumping was observed. The animals showed off nearly for an hour.

    It is unknown whether they were feeding or carrying out a daily local movement in relation to prey movement. The fishermen mentioned that sightings of dolphins were common place and abundant in these waters .They confirmed the presence of schools of tuna below
    A notable observation was the complete absence of Shearwaters - Ardenna and Calonectris genuses– 522 nos. that were sighted in multiple groups on a pelagic birdwatching trip on 26th June 2016 a month ago along a similar path in the sea. It is not known whether their absence could be correlated to the presence of the huge number of dolphins. The eBird checklist of the previous trip along with the GPS tracks can be seen here: http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S30608771

    On 6th August 2016 on a pelagic birdwatching trip on a fishing trawler a huge pod of dolphins were sighted off the Chennai coast. Videos and photographs confirmed a super-pod of Stenella atttenuata also known as Pan-tropical Spotted Dolphin. Three to five dolphins were breaching at a time every 5-10 minutes, and the estimate was about 10-15 pods of 100 dolphins/pod. As the boat stayed with the dolphins for about 90 minutes the size of the full group could be in hundreds if not a thousand. The dolphins were moving constantly showing acrobatic and social behaviour. They seemed to be moving while locally milling. There were calves and adults, singles, pairs and big groups. The sighting was between 12.40 p.m. 13.17592329, 80.51683536 until about 02.15 p.m 13.12593895, 80.509396. The temperature was around 36 C at about 12 noon, wind speed 18 km/h in West/South-West direction at 12 noon, the depths of the sea in the range of 90-95 meters.

    Personal observations of the latter part of the incident; first-hand eyewitness account of earlier timeline of events.

    Female, presumably adult. Reportedly stranded alive and swam back with reflotation assistance from tourists and lifeguards at least four times between ~14:00 hrs on 26/03/16 and ~00:00 hrs on 27/03/16, before finally washing ashore dead at ~00 hrs.
    A visual external examination of the carcass showed that the animal did not seem to have serious antemortem injuries that would possibly cause it to strand, but it was visibly emaciated.

    The Konkan Cetacean Research Team, while on a survey of Indo-Pacific humpback dolphins near the Sindhudurg coastline, spotted a Blue whale on March 28. The previous sighting of the mammal off the Maharashtra coast was in 1914, records say.

    -A 42-foot-long blue whale died after being washed ashore on the Revdanda coast in Alibaug, around 80 km from here, on Wednesday night. The day-long attempts by the local people to put the mammal, weighing about 20 tonnes, back into the sea went in vain.T

    All the observations are carried out in passenger vessels which are being regularly operated by the Shipping corporation of India.
    Usually, the observations are made from bridge wing or flying bridge monkey island on a platform, at an average elevation 10-13 m to ensure optimum observation levels. Counting was always carried out only one side of the bow; typically port side.
    Marine mammals were recorded opportunistically. Dolphins typically visited the ship briefly, enhancing their detection probability.

    16 dolphins found washed ashore
    Staff Reporter
    Mass stranding seen as a possible reason
    Sixteen common long-nosed dolphins were found washed ashore near the coastal village of Veerampattinam here on Monday.
    Post-mortem
    A post-mortem was conducted by Forest Department officials and samples were sent to the Rajiv Gandhi College of Veterinary Science for
    further analysis.
    Dipani Sutaria:
    We with Vandana Gupta, Riturpana Bhattacharya and Siddharth Ramchandran went back twice and found seven animals on Veerampatinam beach. We also found another animal in the north on Surya beach, close to Auroville, almost 20 km north. All animals are Spinner Dolphins. Size ranges from 1.4 to 1.68m and teeth counts vary from 43/42 to 49/47
    Whether they are Dwarf Spinners or just Spinners is something we can tell only from the entire skeleton and vertebrae, or from molecular analysis.
    Location: Veerampatinam, Cuddalore district, Tamil Nadu

    Dr. Charles Anderson"

    Your message to Kumaran Sathasivam was forwarded for comment[MMI messages nos. 403, 404; animal identified as Blue Whale or Bryde's Whale]. I have replied to that, but wanted to contact you directly to say that this stranding looks to be a particularly interesting one. It seems most likely to be a Minke, although is not clear exactly what species it is. If it is a Minke it is especially interesting, since there are very few records from our region, and it is not even known which species of Minke is found in our region there are 2-3 species of Minke worldwide.
