Abstract

A live male Blue whale Balaenoptera musculus Linnaeus locally called "papper meenu" measuring 12.17 m in total length was entangled accidentally on 9th May 1994 in a synthetic drift gillnet operated by a mechanised-cum-sail craft at a depth of 50 metres off Mangamaripeta which is situated 12 km north of Visakhapatnam. The fishermen towed the Blue whale to the Mangamaripeta marine fish landing centre.
