Pods of Blue whales were seen off the Northern California coast. Blue whale is the largest animal ever lived.
Whale watching tour operators have testified sighting pods of blue whales and humpback whales in Monterey Bay. Seeing blue whales close to coast is very rare.
Nancy Black a marine biologist also reported that basking sharks made an appearance too. Basking shark is the second largest living fish. She tell people it’s a once-in-a-lifetime chance.
There is approximately 10,000 living blue whales worldwide and 2,000 whales are from north-eastern Pacific Ocean. These animals are near to extinction and continue to be endangered.
A biological chain reaction is the root of the current ocean giants’ boom reported by Marine biologist. Northwest airstreams carried to the surface colder and nutrient-rich water from the bottom of the ocean.
This churning carries phytoplankton to the surface. Phytoplankton multiplies in the fairer atmosphere due to enough sunlight and carbon dioxide in the surface. Krill a shrimp- like water creature will eat phytoplankton. As a result, ocean giants get attracted by the increase number of their most-wanted food, the krill.
Blue whales eat approximately four tons of krill every single day. Humpbacks whales were seen eating loads of krill too.
