Dead whale found in Bay water near Alameda

Local News San Francisco,

A dead whale was found in the Bay area on Wednesday morning. The whale was lodged in a dock in Alameda, but it was not clear how the whale died.

Justin Viezbicke, the fisheries service’s California stranding network coordinator, said that they were informed about the 35-foot-long stranded whale by the U.S. Coast Guard at around 4.30 a.m. The whale was found in the waters off Alameda across from Oakland’s Jack London Square.

Viezbicke said that the researchers have not been able to determine what kind of whale it is and how big it is. They are trying for options to get the whale out of the water to study it, but it is expensive and difficult.

The researcher would try to find the cause of death of the whale, especially since it was found in that area where there could be numerous causes for its death.

In the recent times, there have been several sightings of whale along the Northern California coast, because of the warmer water temperature. And there has been an increase in the number of whale deaths this year, along the west coast of North America.
