Long-term Cetacean Photo-identification

Through the collaboration between researchers, students, interns, and local whale watching companies, the Húsavík Research Centre keeps long-term photo-identification catalogues, sightings logs, and behavioural logs of several whale species: humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae), minke whales (Balaenoptera acutorostrata), white-beaked dolphins (Lagenorhynchus albirostris), and fin whales (Balaenoptera physalus).
