Abstract

Brief description, with photographs, of a technique called photo-identification, which allows whale-watchers to recognize and name individual animals by the distinctive markings and colorations on their flukes and fins. Biologists at Allied Whale in Bar Harbor were among the pioneers of the technique. Allied Whale has amassed images of more than 7,000 individual cetaceans, the largest collection of information of photo-identified humpbacks and finbacks in the world.
