337 Whales Beached in Largest Stranding Ever

That is the biggest single whale stranding event known to science. Because of the remoteness of the area and the roughness of the seas, scientists have not been able to examine the whales directly, but aerial and satellite photography identified 305 bodies and 32 skeletons in an area between the Gulf of Penas and Puerto Natales, toward the southern tip of the continent. Many of the remains were in advanced states of decay so it’s unclear what species they are, says lead scientist Carolina Simon Gutstein of the Universidad de Chile and Consejo de Monumentos Nacionales in Santiago.

But based on their size and location, they are probably sei whales, she says. Endangered throughout its range, sei whales are large, bluish-gray baleen whales that filter the water to feed on krill and other small creatures. The status of whales off Chile is poorly known, she adds.

One of the most exciting scientific findings of the past half century has been the discovery of widespread trophic cascades.

How Whales Change Climate - Sustainable Human

A trophic cascade is an ecological process which starts at the top of the food chain and tumbles all the way down to the bottom. We all know that whales eat fish and krill, and some people – certain politicians in Japan for example - have argued that killing whales would be good for human beings, as it would boost the food available for us to eat. And so you would think. But as the great whales declined, so did the numbers of fish and krill. It seems counter-intuitive: surely their numbers would rise as their major predators disappeared?

Japan's excuse for slaughtering thousands of whales has been blown to pieces. The country has long exploited a loophole allowing whaling for "scientific research," and scientists say its whaling program is utterly unscientific. A panel of experts from the International Whaling Commission (IWC), the body that once regulated commercial whaling around the world, condemned Japan's newly-revised Antarctic whale hunt plans, claiming they show no need for killing whales, Reuters reports. "With the information presented in the proposal, the Panel was not able to determine whether lethal sampling is necessary to achieve the two major objectives; therefore, the current proposal does not demonstrate the need for lethal sampling to achieve those objectives.

" The IWC adopted a moratorium on whaling in 1986 and encouraged member countries to sign it. How a DVD Case Killed a Whale: the Issue With Marine Debris.
