Gray whale carcass
Carlsbad, CA | 2019-May-15
Initial Notification: The NMFS Stranding Coordinator for CA contacted the NOAA SSC to report a 25-30’ Gray whale carcass that had come ashore near Carlsbad, CA on 15-MAY-2019. No field necropsy is anticipated, so the carcass may be towed offshore on/about 16-MAY. 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.
