Kasey the Minke Whale!
It is incredibly exciting to hear that Kasey the Minke Whale was spotted this week on a Sea Life Mull tour!
Going Back to the year 2000 a Minke Whale with a distinctly notched dorsal fin was first sighted and positively identified using photo ID work, and was named 'Kasey'. The whale has been one of the more regular animals encountered on marine survey excursions over the years and has shown strong site fidelity to certain areas of sea including the Sound of Mull and off Ardnamurchan. Kasey was recorded with a calf in both the 2007 and 2008 season which confirms that the animal is a female.
