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.
