Coast Guard Assists NOAA In Whale Disentanglement

Post by Patriots » April 21st, 2019, 9:57 pm


The Coast Guard assisted National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) members in disentangling a humpback whale off Maui, Hawaii in March 2019. The sub-adult mammal had snagged an estimated 500 feet of heavy gauge line with a buoy in its mouth causing the tangled line to act as a bridle.

The combined effort by the Coast Guardsmen and NOAA team successfully freed it, as a companion humpback whale swam with it.
