Rehoboth Beach, Lewes, Milton, Delaware Beaches Events & Activities 3/24/10 – 3/28/10 Update on Fin Whale that washed up in Fenwick Island


Update received from the MERR Institute, Inc. regarding the findings after performing a necropsy on the Fin Whale that washed up this past week-end on the beach in Fenwick Island.  This information is from a member of the necropsy team.  It was only 20 years old, and weighed at least 100,000 lbs.  The whale appears to have died from a blunt force trauma, most likely a boat strike.  “To the public that traveled to see this amazing creature, thanks for supporting MERR’s efforts in understanding more about the marine mammals and sea turtles that visit Delaware’s coastal waters.”  If you would like to see my post and pictures regarding the fin whale just scroll down to the 3/21 post on this blog.


Events and activities at the beaches are increasing.  A good sign that the summer season will be upon us in no time.  Pretty nice events going on, so check them out.
