Dear MARMAMers,


We are proud to announce the publication of our new orca ID catalogue:


“North Atlantic Killer Whales of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula.
Photo-Identification Catalogue Iceland, 2016 Winter Edition.”


This catalogue includes identification images of 192 North Atlantic Killer
Whales sighted off the Snæfellsnes Peninsula from January 2014 to October
2015. The catalogue is publicly available to enhance observations and
facilitate further research. We hope that this catalogue will help us
follow the seasonal movements of the Icelandic orca population as it can be
used by the whale-watching public to identify killer whales all over
Iceland.


This is an ongoing, non-invasive research project, running all year round –
missing pictures will be added in upcoming seasons as sightings allow, and
the catalogue will be expanded to include additional pictures of
individuals not yet photographed.


If you would like to contribute to the project (e.g. if you have taken
pictures of orcas in Icelandic waters or the North Atlantic in general) or
for further inquiries please send an e-mail to:
marie.mrusczok at googlemail.com


The catalogue is freely available for download at:

Best regards


Marie Mrusczok
