HUMPBACK FLUKE RECORDS

Allied Whale at CoA

To produce a consolidated database, AW at CoA inter-matches 2 identification catalogues for the North Atlantic - the results of the YoNAH ('Years of North Atlantic Humpback') research project from 1992/3, and the NAHWC (the 'North Atlantic Humpback Whale Catalogue'), first published in 1976 by AW.  Many thanks to AW staff for detailed information provided: we appreciate receiving this information when they have lots of other work to do! You can visit the AW website at http://www.coa.edu/html/alliedwhale.htm .

AW advised us that any whales with HWC numbers above 7394 are new whales to them since 2010, and so we have added more than 20 previously unrecorded animals to the AW catalogue and have many others from 2011 and 2012 awaiting adjudication. We think that adding to the known catalogue is an exciting development. Many thanks to all our contributing photographers, well done!

Kris Prince (seaofwhales.com)

Kris Prince has contributed in a major way to this site with many humpback images. His enthusiasm, navigational skill and exceptional eyesight are well known and he manages to keep clients interested in what they are seeing by answering their many questions, whilst still capturing the images - thanks are hugely due to him as this site would be much the poorer but for his considerable contribution. Kris and his wife, Shawna, run their own excellent whale study business, Sea of Whales Adventures, in Trinity - never miss a chance to go out with Kris!. Check out some of their recent live footage on Youtube too.

Records on this site

This site's records are arranged below, in order, from all black , through combinations of black and white, to all white - although this is not an exact science - split into 'Identified', 'Unidentified', 'Recent calves' and, on separate pages, 'Partials' and 'Out-of focus' and 'Dorsals'. The best available submitted picture of the fluke is shown and all pictures were taken around the Bonavista peninsula, Newfoundland, in Bonavista and/or Trinity Bays. There are now over 340 different flukes shown below.

AW have advised that most humpbacks around Newfoundland are not given names but there may now be occasions when, locally, we have suggested names for some of the whales which are unnamed elsewhere. Where the number is shown as 'M' for example, I have used this reference until the animal can be matched to AW records (this process is quite arduous and thanks are due to Allied Whale staff/students for their efforts where this has been done). Where the fluke image is not as good you might check our 'Dorsals' page.

All photographs appearing on this part of the site are the copyright of the specific photographer named and are the result of their skill, enthusiasm and generosity.  

We would like you to contribute (please do not forget pictures/images from years past)

If you have fluke photographs/images, please don't just 'file and forget' them - we need your help. If you would like to contribute to this record, please ensure that any photographs/images comply with AW preferences and have at least a resolution of 150 dpi, an in-focus fluke image that occupies most of the photo/image (we will accept, and may be able to enhance, slightly out-of-focus shots). AW will accept partial fluke, and half fluke images as well, as long as they comply with the foregoing criteria. If you have such photographs we should be grateful if you would let us have them when you are in our area or alternatively send them to us at whalesmail@talktalk.net.  If you have many photo-images it may be quicker and easier if you let us have them on a DVD or CD - in this case, please request a mailing address from us when you see us in Newfoundland before you go home.

If you have photographs or images from previous years' trips to the area, please send them in we would love to see them even if you do not have all the details. We have been given images from 1996 and 1999 from Mo and David Reeves of Cambridge, England - invaluable in adding detail to humpbacks' history. When watching/photographing humpbacks you may not see a full fluke (or may only get an out-of focus image) which may make identification difficult. In order to keep a record, and for the principal use of cataloguers, these pictures may be accessed by 'clicking' on the button below:

                                                                                                               Part flukes

By the way, even a good 'shot' of a dorsal may be enough - if it is distinctive - to identify the animal so please do not 'recycle' these - send them to us. If you are a real humpback 'geek' or have a dorsal but no fluke, then check out our dorsal records - please click the button below:

                                                                                                                Dorsals

Humpbacks are now plentiful around the Peninsula this year. We have just heard from AW that 'our' humpback P08 who we saw several times in 2008/9 is a new whale to them and is now HWC#7772 - thanks are due to all our photographers who have contributed 181 images of this whale to our records. Here's to happy watching and photographing to all.
