Date Posted: 2001-06-01

An Ishigaki Maritime Safety Agency helicopter discovered a herd of about hundred whales, Thursday in an area 7.4 kilometers off Hateruma Island, just south of Ishigaki Island.

Officials who discovered the whales said they were surprised and had never seen such a large herd. They confirmed that the whales were divided roughly in three groups consisting of nearly thirty of them each. According to specialists, the size of the whales in the herds being double or triple compared to dolphins indicates that they are most likely short-finned pilot whales.
