Record #139994:

Recent status of bowhead whales, Balaena mysticetus, in the wintering grounds off West Greenland / Randall R. Reeves, Mads Peter Heide-Jørgensen.

Title: Recent status of bowhead whales, Balaena mysticetus, in the wintering grounds off West Greenland / Randall R. Reeves, Mads Peter Heide-Jørgensen.
Author(s): Reeves, Randall R.
Heide-Jørgensen, Mads Peter.
Date: 1996.
In: Polar Research. (1996.), Vol. 15(2) (1996)
Abstract: Whales of Davis Strait/Baffin Bay stock have historically wintered there and along west Greenland coast. Aerial surveys late during 6 recent winters showed that tens of whales still visited. These and Canadian surveys show that recovery from commercial whaling that ended in 1915 had been very slow, regardless of small numbers killed locally.
