All identification photos taken of whales during the NZ-Australia Antarctic Ecosystems Voyage to the Ross Sea 2015
Entry ID: AAS_4102_all_photo_ID_images_2015


Summary
Abstract: All photos taken during the NZ-Australia Antarctic Ecosystems Voyage to the Ross Sea 2015 in an attempt to get a best photo identification image of blue whales, killer whales, humpback whales and minke whales. Image collection location and other details such as photographer, species, date (UTC) can be found in excel spreadsheet.

Purpose: Individual identification allows the production of sightings histories required for a mark-recapture approach to estimating abundance. These data will also provide information on whale population structure and movement.
