Humpback whale found stranded on Masirah

Muscat – A humpback whale was found stranded on Masirah Island recently, reported the Environment Society of Oman (ESO) on Wednesday. “Samples are collected from the whale to see if it was previously recorded in the cetacean catalogue. The loss of one humpback whale is like losing one per cent of the population as there are less than 100 individuals surviving in Oman,” the statement said.
