    Code-3 Blue Whale Carcass Whale Diglipur, March 03: A young blue whale measuring 12.2 meter long was washed ashore dead on Smith Island Beach of Diglipur on 2nd March 2022. As per report, Dr. Bhojane Nagnath Martand. Senior Veterinary Officer, Veterinary Hospital, Diglipur conducted the post mortem examination of the carcass of this endangered sea mammal on 02/03/2022 itself on the official request of the Range Officer, WildLife Range Kalara, Diglipur. As per post mortem examination report, 03 cut wounds on the right ventral aspect of neck region were noticed on the body. Post mortem report further revealed that the carcass was showing post mortem ballooning resulting into rupture of skin at right side tail region and oozing of black whitish oily fluid indicating putrefactive changes in internal organs while mouth was widely open, no teeth and protruded ballooned esophageal part through mouth was seen. Left side fin and tail were completely rotten and the skin part completely detached. Internal examination revealed that both the ventricles were empty and black coloured while lungs, liver and other vital organs were in black in colour indicating highly putrefred. Intestines were ballooned and blackening and highly putrefred. A conclusion drawn from the examination details and analysis of the visceral lesions that the blue whale possibly might have died due to severe haemorrhage leading to hypovolemic shock and cardiorespiratory failure. The wild life and territorial staff of the Forest Dept. then cut the carcass into pieces and buried them in a deep trench to finally dispose of the dead whale, the source said.

    Puja Mitra mitra.phase@gmail.com 22-06-2022 Dead stranding INDIA - Goa False killer whale 15.513937545022658,73.76375921636351

    False killer whale calf. Necropsy by Reefwatch found roundworms in the stool which was charcoal black. Tiny cycts on the intestines filled with thin roundworms. ID of species done based on dorsal fin, flipper whale, melon shape. Patterns found on body that correlate with roundworm infection. Anisakiasis Anisakiasis is caused by anisakid roundworms. Humans are not the primary host for these parasites. Anisakid roundworms infest whales, seals, and dolphins; crabs then ingest roundworm eggs from the feces of these animals. In the crabs, the eggs hatch into larvae that can infect fish. The larvae enter the muscles of marine animals further up the food chain, including squid, mackerel, herring, cod, salmon, tuna, and halibut. Humans become accidental hosts when they eat raw or under-cooked fish containing anisakid larvae.

    During a recent fishery cruise onboard FV.Sagar Harita, north to Kochi, we have spotted a single carcass of dolphin. As the upper hump of the animal was very prominent the carcass was identified as Indian Ocean humpback dolphin. The body was almost couple of days old and was in almost in decayed condition. Belly was in busted condition and viscera was protruding out. So, it was difficult to take the morphometrics measurements of the specimen. There was no any deep external injury in the body. The upper beak was found damaged. The actual reason for the death of the animal is unknown.

    I saw these dolphins 5-6 times in the last 11 months, the locals who live along the beach see them almost every day from January to August. Group size varies from 2 - 5 or 6. Didn't count but around that number. During high tide, they would come very close to the shore so the distance would range anywhere between 25- 500 meters.

    The Dolphins are usually spotted in the water around the shore temple. This video was taken by Mumu - a local surfer who runs Mumu Surf School

    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.

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.

    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.

    Humpback dolphin and finless porpoise carcass washed ashore. Probably, necropsy was conducted by the SPCA, but no details were shared.
    The carcass appears small in size, probably a calf/juvenile. The attached pictures have two carcasses, the smaller one is the humpback dolphin carcass.
