Situation assessment delivered to the Norwegian Directorate of Fisheries

May 10, 2019

In order to help the progress with this very unique situation that involves animal welfare, Norwegian Orca Survey voluntarily prepared and delivered a situation assessment report to the Norwegian Directorate of Fisheries. Importantly, concerns about the whale's welfare and survival were expressed following the apparent lack of natural feeding and lean body condition. A permission to initiate a feeding program, as an emergency response, was requested.
