The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE IS­LAND -

An­other dead whale has been sighted by a re­cent aerial pa­trol car­ried out by Fish­eries and Oceans Canada (DFO).

The car­cass of a fin whale has been lo­cated east of P.E.I.

“The cause of death is un­known at this time and the depart­ment is de­ter­min­ing next steps,” DFO said in a news re­lease.

“DFO takes the pro­tec­tion and con­ser­va­tion of all marine mam­mals very se­ri­ously. DFO will con­tinue to in­ves­ti­gate the deaths of North At­lantic right whales and con­duct pa­trols as re­quired.”
