Barlow (2006) used estimates of g(0) adapted from previous studies of delphinids and large whales (Barlow, 1995), sperm whales (Barlow and Sexton (2)), and beaked whales and Kogia
We are quite excited because sightings of these types of Kogia
whales are quite rare.
It is estimated that a 30-sample identification work of Kogia
Photographs analysed by Dr Peter Evans, Director of Sea Watch, revealed the shape of a Kogia
whale, distinctive because of its large almost triangular fin.

We observed a total of 12 dolphin species, three rorqual species, two ziphiid species, and one Kogia
Take reduction plans currently are in effect for the harbor porpoise, Phocoena phocoena, in the Mid Atlantic and Gulf of Maine regions; large whales (Eubalaena glacialis, Megaptera novaenangliae, and Balaenoptera physalis) in the Atlantic; and the pilot whale, Globicephala macrorhynchus; pygmy sperm whale, Kogia
