Dear All,
On a Danish research vessel, the Galathea 3, we have encountered several humpack whale pods including a mother and possible newborn calf in Ghanese waters between N 04'02.676'' W 01'56.015'' and N 04'54.402'' 
W 00'35.895'' on Oct 1 and 2. We were able to get photo id (fluke prints) from 2 individuals.Does anybody have any knowledge of humpback whales in these waters during this time of the season?
Please email to Nina Eriksen: neriksen at bi.ku.dk or Marianne Rasmussen: mhr at biology.sdu.dk
