Black whale beached

A 400 kg short-finned pilot whale died on the beach at Kep on Feb 12 after being

caught in a gill-net. Ing Try, Marine fisheries biologist of Fisheries Department

suspected that the whale was suffering from disease or was injured before it was

caught. Try said that the whale resisted all attempts to return it to the sea and

kept returning to the shore to beach itself. It is the first time the species has

been discovered in Cambodian coastal waters. The whale will be stuffed and mounted

at the Ministry of Fisheries.
