For the second time in one month, another whale has been spotted off the coast Qbajjar in Gozo.
A video uploaded by Alan Deidun shows the whale surfacing in a distance with the marine biologist identifying the species as a fin whale.
Yet another fin whale sighting….This video was taken earlier this week along the coast of Qbajjar (Gozo) by Rod Sammut, whom I thank for sharing it…..

Known as balena kbira in Maltese, the fin whale is known to migrate to the southwest of Malta to feed on krill during spring. It can grow to a maximum length of 26m and a maximum weight of 74 tonnes.
Earlier this month, another whale, also believed to be a fin whale, had been sighted earlier this month in Gozo but off the coast of Munxar.
