Dead whale discovered on cruise ship bow

A dead young male fin whale has been discovered on the bow of a cruise ship after it arrived in port in Alaska.

The Zaandam was preparing to dock in Seaward when the body of the whale was spotted on Sunday morning. A veterinary pathologist is now investigating what may have killed the whale, which had not been on the bow earlier when the ship was preparing to enter the port according to the owners.

Fin whales are the second largest species of whale after the blue whale.
