ANOTHER RIGHT WHALE FOUND DEAD
Fisheries officials say another dead Right whale has been discovered in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. In a statement late Friday evening, DFO said that during a surveillance flight, a North Atlantic Right whale carcass was located Friday morning in the Gulf of St. Lawrence (off Miscou Island). To date, the deaths of at least 11 North Atlantic Right whales have been confirmed in the Gulf. There will be an attempt to recover and perform a necropsy on the whale next week.
