Hello, it’s Danielle again, senior naturalist and photographer with Quoddy Link Marine. I just wanted to let you know that I’ve identified another humpback from our 2005 season…

This humpback was named Squalus at the 2006 whale naming conference in Provincetown, MA. The name Squalus comes from the black markings on the upper left corner of the fluke (the pattern is difficult to see in this picture). Squalus comes from the genus for dogfish sharks, including the spiny dogfish (Squalus acanthias), which is a very common smaller shark (up to 3.5 feet) found in the Bay of Fundy.

We look forward to seeing you in the summer for our 2006 season. We start whale watching on June 25th. Come see everything the Bay of Fundy has to offer with Quoddy Link Marine….Catamaran Style.

Our 30th Anniversary! 🎊
