Dear colleagues,

The following is now available online: 

Olson, P.A. and Gerrodette, T. 2008. Killer whales of the eastern tropical Pacific: A catalog of photo-identified individuals. NOAA Technical Memorandum. NOAA-NMFS-SWFSC-428.

It is the first photo-identification catalog of tropical pelagic killer whales. 195 individual killer were identified in the eastern tropical Pacific between 1986 and 2006. The catalog yields information on the geographic movement and external morphology of this little known population of killer whales. 

The catalog can be accessed via the following link:
