Initial Notification: Early afternoon on 06-APR-2020, NMFS Stranding Coordinator in CA contacted the NOAA SSC regarding a 30-35’ gray whale carcass at the Port of Los Angeles, CA. It is expected that the carcass may be towed offshore early tomorrow afternoon (07-APR-2020). NMFS requested a carcass drift estimate to aid in determining how far offshore to tow the carcass so it does not re-beach in the upcoming days.
