Dead Whale Trapped in Sea Ice off NL

Posted by Kyle Brookings on Sunday, April 14, 2019

It is not unusual to see whales off the coast of Newfoundland but a whale in the Bay St. George area is quite uncommon.

A whale has been dead for weeks now and the body is trapped in sea ice and can be seen half out of the water.

Sea ice is especially severe this year.

The Department of Fisheries and Oceans is working to determine the species. 

It has been a recurring event to see dead whales wash onshore in recent years.
