Dear colleagues,

We are investigating the occurrence of a skin anomaly (blackened area with
white border) on the dorsal fins of sei whales; please see the below link
for photos. We are looking for anyone with a biopsy sample of a fin with
this anomaly, or records of similar sightings of sei, or other, whales.

Thank you in advance,
