According to the Vancouver Sun Newspaper  (Published on: December 1, 2016 ) “An unexpected increase in humpback whale numbers in B.C.’s coastal
waters has resulted in record entanglements in nets, lines, traps and related fishing gear.” They are also becoming entangled in aquaculture (fish farm) nets. 

Anyone who sees an entangled whale is urged to call the Marine Mammal distress line, toll free at 1-800-465-4336.

Please report all marine mammals found dead or in distress.
Call the toll-free reporting hotline 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 1 800 465 4336
