Abstract

A sighting of a group of false killer whale (Pseudorca crassidens) was
reported for the first time in the northern Aegean Sea. It was also the
first reported sighting in 25 years for the Aegean Sea. Eight individuals in
total were recorded in a footage taken by a local fisherman. During the
hauling of the handline, it was observed that one juvenile came to the line
to play with it. The information of such sightings of rare species is
valuable to understand the regional biodiversity.
