- NOAA - Death of Young Right Whale Highlights that Prevention of Entanglements is Key
Death of Young Right Whale Highlights that Prevention of Entanglements is Key Entanglements and Ship Strikes Biggest Threats to Endangered Right Whales. The death of a young right whale off Florida drives home the point that while disentanglement responses give the animals a better chance at survival, prevention of entanglements in fishing gear is paramount. On February 3, NOAA scientist Barb Zoodsma joined partners from numerous state and local agencies, along with researchers from academic institutions and nonprofits organizations, to perform a necropsy – animal autopsy – on a young right whale. The animal was observed floating dead off St Augustine, FL, by an aerial survey team.
