* Öztürk, A.A., Dede, A., Tonay, A.M., Danyer, E., Aytemiz, I. 2015.
Stranding of a minke whale on the eastern Mediterranean coast of Turkey,
April 2015. J. Black

Sea/Mediterranean Environment 21 (2):232-237.





Minke whale, Balaenoptera acutorostrata Lacépède, 1804, is known as a
visitor species in the Mediterranean Sea. On 10 April 2015, a female minke
whale stranded in Yumurtalık on the eastern Mediterranean coast of Turkey.
The body length and body weight were measured as 3.55 m and 400 kg,
respectively. The carcass was necropsied, however the reason of the
stranding was not evident due the advanced stage of decomposition. This is
the second case of minke whale stranding in Turkey.
