Norwegian Orca Survey

After one day of very rough sea and 'no go' for fieldwork, we were glad to carry on today! We encountered several pods in Andfjord. One pod had a tiny.

Type D Orca: One specimen washed up in New Zealand in 1955, but it was considered to have been a deformed "normal" species of orca until its descendents were spotted. A recent study of the waters of Chilean Antarctica is speculating that the rare and very different killer whales spotted in the sea are actually a previously undocumented species. As early as 2005, fisherman and tourists were reporting having seen orcas described as "different" and having "an incredibly distinctive look".
