Blue whale found in southern Indian Ocean

Today. The University of Washington has found in a study that the extinct blue whale has been found on the southwest coast of India and their whale songs can also be heard. Along with their discovery, it has been advised to take necessary steps for their conservation in this area. In fact, the expansion of tourism is also being considered here and in such a situation it becomes important to take care of the presence of whales.

The study was published in May in the journal Marine Manual Science. Between 2018 and 2020, well activity in Lakshadweep peaked between April and May.

Lead researcher of this study Divya Palekar says that the well has been seen many times in the ocean associated with India, but the question is where it is found. Which songs do you sing and for how long does it last? Their presence in Lakshadweep has been understood from this city. This is necessary so that science-based management and conservation plans can be made.

The giant blue whale is found in Antarctica and the smaller Bikini whale blue whale is rarely out of the water in the Indian Ocean, so contact methods were adopted to identify them. Blue whales make 1 to 6 sounds in a series that lasts about 20 seconds. Common man cannot hear them. Its pattern differs from each whale population.

This can be confirmed with the help of recordings placed in the water microphone at both ends of the Aqua Rati for the study. It comes between the rains in winter and summer.

Researchers say that the vine may have lived in the northern Indian Ocean and would sometimes come to Lakshadweep. Senior researcher Kat Stanford says that the Indian Ocean is an important place for Blue Wales. A species that is slowly growing very slowly due to commercial and illegal balance, especially in the Indian Ocean.
