[MARMAM] Skinny fin whales: Nova Scotia

I’ve been collecting data over the past four weeks on the distribution of rorqual whales off the Atlantic Coast of Nova Scotia, Canada. 


During this time I have encountered a lot of rather skinny looking fin whales. Almost all sighted displayed distinct signs of the vertebrae being discernable, with approximately eight individuals showing concave depressions along their flanks.


I was wondering if any other researchers or naturalists working along the East Coast of Canada or the US have noticed this recently as well ?


Any information would be most appreciated.
