Our research team just positively identified the male orca we encountered in Faxaflói bay last weekend as the same individual that we encountered in a similar area earlier this year! Interestingly enough, on 28 February the male was seen travelling with another male, but it seems to have returned on 15 December with a juvenile, a female and her calf!

Using photo identification, we are able to further understand a whale's social behaviour, feeding habits, migration and to estimate age and population.
