Geographic information
Lineage
The distribution and migration patterns of the fin whale (Balaenoptera physalus) in the Mediterranean Sea are largely unknown. This species is mostly at risk of ship strike, it is therefore essential to develop synoptic tools to derive its habitat at large scale. We describe a ...
