• Taxonomical List

    Please note that the records in our database have species names as identified in the respective sources unless misidentifications have been reported. The current understanding is that there are no specimens to support the idea that there are Fin, Minke and Sei whales in the Northern Indian Ocean. It should also be noted that the taxonomy of the smaller delphinids in the region is still evolving.
