Whale on OC Beach

January 25, 2012  •  Leave a Comment








Early Monday afternoon (Jan 23rd) a 60 ft female Finback Whale washed up on the 7th Street Beach in Ocean City NJ. The Marine Mammal Stranding Center in Brigantine performed a necropsy (autopsy) on the whale on Tuesday and their findings were that the whale had been struck by a boat and had been dead for about a week. With the help on the Ocean City Public Works crews, the whale was cut up and buried near the Ocean City/Longport bridge.
